Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1819" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2073 after 14 days on 19 June 2073 at 18:44.
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 19:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 908 of Meeus index or 1861 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes is the length of new lunation 908. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 909 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠250°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 31 May 2073 at 06:54 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 June 2073 at 21:26 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 394 014 km (244 829 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 448 km (228 322 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 27 May 2073 at 15:39 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 June 2073 at 22:06 in ♌ Leo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 24 May 2073 at 00:48 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.521°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.587° in the next northern standstill on 7 June 2073 at 13:47 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
