Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2054 after 13 days on 20 June 2054 at 03:42.
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 02:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 673 of Meeus index or 1626 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 673. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 674 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠316.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2054 at 00:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2054 at 21:43 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 372 115 km (231 222 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 007 km (226 805 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 29 May 2054 at 02:37 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 June 2054 at 07:33 in ♍ Virgo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 24 May 2054 at 11:01 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.115°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.164° in the next northern standstill on 7 June 2054 at 14:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
