Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2068 after 18 days on 15 July 2068 at 02:07.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 846 of Meeus index or 1799 from Brown series.
Length of current 846 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 847 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠66°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠99.8°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 20 June 2068 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 July 2068 at 16:27 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 375 357 km (233 236 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 637 km (251 430 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 20:13 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 11 July 2068 at 06:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

11 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2068 at 04:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.453°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.448° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2068 at 02:09 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 29 June 2068 at 15:11 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
