Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1904" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2063 after 13 days on 11 June 2063 at 00:43.
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 01:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 784 of Meeus index or 1737 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 39 minutes is the length of new lunation 784. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 785 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325.5°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 19 May 2063 at 21:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 June 2063 at 01:18 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 376 413 km (233 892 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 758 km (228 514 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 21 May 2063 at 05:36 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 June 2063 at 11:31 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.
13 days after previous South standstill on 15 May 2063 at 05:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.173°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.118° in the next northern standstill on 29 May 2063 at 11:44 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
