Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1921" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2062 after 14 days on 23 May 2062 at 07:03.
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 17:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 770 of Meeus index or 1723 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 6 minutes is the length of new lunation 770. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 771 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
9 days after point of apogee on 29 April 2062 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 May 2062 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 373 201 km (231 896 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 785 km (225 424 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 5 May 2062 at 16:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 May 2062 at 08:14 in ♍ Virgo.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 28 April 2062 at 07:22 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.595°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.528° in the next northern standstill on 11 May 2062 at 22:52 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
