Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1824" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2076 after 15 days on 17 June 2076 at 02:38.
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 17:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 945 of Meeus index or 1898 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 51 minutes is the length of new lunation 945. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 946 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 56 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠114.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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 perigee on 22 May 2076 at 07:47 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 June 2076 at 01:18 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 392 877 km (244 122 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 950 km (251 624 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 20 May 2076 at 16:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 June 2076 at 20:31 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 21 May 2076 at 17:57 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.310°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.333° in the next northern standstill on 4 June 2076 at 02:42 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
