Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1945" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2060 after 15 days on 14 June 2060 at 03:37.
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 18:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 747 of Meeus index or 1700 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 35 minutes is the length of new lunation 747. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 748 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 27 May 2060 at 20:38 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 June 2060 at 19:26 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 368 592 km (229 032 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 799 km (251 530 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 27 May 2060 at 15:43 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 June 2060 at 08:48 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 18 May 2060 at 20:56 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.700°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.668° in the next northern standstill on 31 May 2060 at 15:36 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
