Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1874" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2059 after 16 days on 25 June 2059 at 18:12.
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 19:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 734 of Meeus index or 1687 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 734. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 735 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠53.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠84.4°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 2 June 2059 at 22:39 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 June 2059 at 01:27 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 382 392 km (237 607 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 358 km (251 256 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 8 June 2059 at 12:58 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 June 2059 at 23:01 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 29 May 2059 at 17:41 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.652°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.629° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2059 at 17:24 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
