Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2044 after 14 days on 10 July 2044 at 06:22.
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 10:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 550 of Meeus index or 1503 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 550. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 551 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠0.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠16°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:26, this is 13 days after last apogee on 11 June 2044 at 18:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 8 July 2044 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 175 km (221 938 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2044. It is 5 333 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 750 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 17 June 2044 at 14:53 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 June 2044 at 02:39 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 24 June 2044 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.296°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.308° in the next southern standstill on 8 July 2044 at 11:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
