Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1893".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2067.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 833 of Meeus index or 1786 from Brown series.
Length of current 833 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 834 length.
Length of current synodic month is 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠98.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠132.6°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 19 May 2067 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo. 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 31 May 2067 at 07:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 369 769 km (229 764 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 053 km (226 212 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 16:28 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 11 June 2067 at 19:56 in ♊ Gemini.
At 16:28 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 12:18 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.107°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.109° in its northern standstill point on 11 June 2067 at 14:57 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
