Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2036 after 13 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°).
9 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 May 2036 at 09:17 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 370 062 km (229 946 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 390 km (226 421 mi).
8 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 May 2036 at 22:23 in ♌ Leo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 14 May 2036 at 05:17 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.758°. Next day 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.
