Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2039 after 14 days on 6 July 2039 at 02:03.
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 17:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 488 of Meeus index or 1441 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes is the length of new lunation 488. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 489 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠226.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 404 348 km (251 250 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 517 km (223 394 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 00:51 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 4 July 2039 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
At 00:51 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
13 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2039 at 11:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.703°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.701° in the next northern standstill on 22 June 2039 at 16:02 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
