Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2054 after 14 days on 19 July 2054 at 17:47.
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 10:34 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 674 of Meeus index or 1627 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 14 minutes is the length of new lunation 674. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2054. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 675 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 39 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠336°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.3°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 24 June 2054 at 17:32 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2054 at 21:10 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 367 085 km (228 096 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 411 km (223 949 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 25 June 2054 at 04:56 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 July 2054 at 11:43 in ♌ Leo.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 00:45 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.186°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.176° in its southern standstill point on 18 July 2054 at 03:03 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
