Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1844" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2058 after 18 days on 6 July 2058 at 02:46.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 722 of Meeus index or 1675 from Brown series.
Length of current 722 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 8 June 2058 at 13:26 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 June 2058 at 03:14 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 388 753 km (241 560 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 033 km (252 297 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 6 June 2058 at 17:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 19 June 2058 at 19:09 in ♊ Gemini.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2058 at 10:49 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.296°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.284° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2058 at 22:19 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 21 June 2058 at 00:35 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
