Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1916" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2036 after 14 days on 8 June 2036 at 21:02.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 19:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 450 of Meeus index or 1403 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 53 minutes is the length of new lunation 450. It is 46 minutes longer than next lunation 451 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠338.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of apogee on 16 May 2036 at 12:41 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 May 2036 at 09:17 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 374 118 km (232 466 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 390 km (226 421 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 17 May 2036 at 18:30 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 May 2036 at 22:23 in ♌ Leo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 14 May 2036 at 05:17 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.758°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.831° in the next northern standstill on 28 May 2036 at 03:06 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
