Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2078 after 15 days on 25 June 2078 at 10:22.
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 17:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 969 of Meeus index or 1922 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 53 minutes is the length of new lunation 969. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2078. It is 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 970 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠11.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠29°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 8 June 2078 at 07:36 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 June 2078 at 07:41 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 366 957 km (228 017 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 887 km (251 585 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 8 June 2078 at 00:37 in ♉ Taurus, 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 21 June 2078 at 16:55 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 29 May 2078 at 11:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.084°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.059° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2078 at 07:53 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
