Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1931" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2080 after 14 days on 2 June 2080 at 13:45.
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 10:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 994 of Meeus index or 1947 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes is the length of new lunation 994. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 995 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠323.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠341.5°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 9 May 2080 at 21:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 May 2080 at 17:58 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 371 256 km (230 688 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 382 km (225 795 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 16 May 2080 at 00:50 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 May 2080 at 17:05 in ♎ Libra.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 7 May 2080 at 20:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.498°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.443° in the next northern standstill on 21 May 2080 at 16:35 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
