Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2039 after 13 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°).
2 days 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 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 402 447 km (250 069 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 517 km (223 394 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 21 June 2039 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 July 2039 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 16:02 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.701°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.696° in its southern standstill point on 5 July 2039 at 22:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
