Crescent ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2070 after 15 days on 23 June 2070 at 16:57.
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 18:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 871 of Meeus index or 1824 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2070. It is 47 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠21.1°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:48. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 25 May 2070 at 10:55 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 21 June 2070 at 14:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 376 km (222 063 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 132 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 980 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after descending node on 5 June 2070 at 03:55 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 17 June 2070 at 21:35 in ♎ Libra.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 26 May 2070 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.834°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠18.846° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 June 2070 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
