Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2061 after 15 days on 2 July 2061 at 20:52.
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 18:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 760 of Meeus index or 1713 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 7 minutes is the length of new lunation 760. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 761 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠13.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.2°. 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 16 June 2061 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 June 2061 at 12:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 364 333 km (226 386 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 739 km (252 115 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 13 June 2061 at 01:57 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 June 2061 at 18:12 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 4 June 2061 at 22:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.272°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.260° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2061 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
