Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1863" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2077 after 15 days on 6 July 2077 at 01:22.
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 12:55 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 958 of Meeus index or 1911 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 958. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 959 length.
Length of current synodic month is 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠80.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠115.1°. 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 13 June 2077 at 20:17 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2077 at 13:19 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 384 650 km (239 010 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 298 km (251 219 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 18 June 2077 at 21:39 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 July 2077 at 07:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2077 at 08:58 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.830°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.810° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2077 at 07:13 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
