Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2062 after 15 days on 21 July 2062 at 12:47.
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 17:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 773 of Meeus index or 1726 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 48 minutes is the length of new lunation 773. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 774 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 57 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:35, this is 13 days after last apogee on 23 June 2062 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 20 July 2062 at 10:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 357 187 km (221 946 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2062. It is 5 321 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 762 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 28 June 2062 at 23:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 July 2062 at 11:24 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 5 July 2062 at 17:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.441°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.466° in the next southern standstill on 19 July 2062 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
