Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2049 after 15 days on 15 June 2049 at 19:26.
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 14:00 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 611 of Meeus index or 1564 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 50 minutes is the length of new lunation 611. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 612 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠136.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠162.9°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 19 May 2049 at 19:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 June 2049 at 14:39 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 398 888 km (247 858 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 617 km (252 039 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 11:41 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 18 May 2049 at 21:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.086°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.085° in the next northern standstill on 1 June 2049 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
