Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2058 after 15 days on 6 June 2058 at 19:15.
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 10:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 722 of Meeus index or 1675 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes is the length of new lunation 722. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 723 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠118.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠148.7°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 11 May 2058 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 May 2058 at 13:11 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 395 107 km (245 508 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 059 km (251 692 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 10 May 2058 at 07:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 May 2058 at 12:18 in ♊ Gemini.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 12 May 2058 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.271°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.300° in the next northern standstill on 25 May 2058 at 15:27 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
