Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2074 after 14 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05.
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 13:38 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 921 of Meeus index or 1874 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes is the length of new lunation 921. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 922 length.
Length of current synodic month is 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠250.9°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2074 at 14:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 400 481 km (248 847 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 554 km (225 281 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 12 June 2074 at 10:42 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 10 June 2074 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.986°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.016° in the next northern standstill on 25 June 2074 at 05:18 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
