Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2038 after 14 days on 17 June 2038 at 02:30.
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 09:19 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 474 of Meeus index or 1427 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 5 minutes is the length of new lunation 474. It is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than next lunation 475 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 21 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 42 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠198.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠226°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 29 May 2038 at 20:16 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 400 258 km (248 709 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 752 km (226 025 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 21 May 2038 at 17:34 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 June 2038 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 21 May 2038 at 19:28 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.982°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.031° in the next northern standstill on 5 June 2038 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
