Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1839" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2041 after 14 days on 14 June 2041 at 10:59.
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 22:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 512 of Meeus index or 1465 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes is the length of new lunation 512. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 513 length.
Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠88.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
8 days after point of perigee on 22 May 2041 at 01:18 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 June 2041 at 13:34 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 389 699 km (242 148 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 429 km (251 301 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 28 May 2041 at 04:17 in ♉ Taurus, 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 11 June 2041 at 14:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 19 May 2041 at 01:39 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.362°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.334° in the next northern standstill on 1 June 2041 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
