Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2062 after 13 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 03:22 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 771 of Meeus index or 1724 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 771. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 772 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠325.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.6°. 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°).
10 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 May 2062 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 369 283 km (229 462 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 785 km (225 424 mi).
3 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 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 May 2062 at 08:14 in ♍ Virgo.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 28 April 2062 at 07:22 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.595°. Next 2 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.
