Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2080 after 14 days on 2 July 2080 at 04:09.
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 18:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 995 of Meeus index or 1948 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 40 minutes is the length of new lunation 995. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2080. It is 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 996 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠341.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠357°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2080 at 12:37 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2080 at 21:12 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 366 516 km (227 742 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 167 km (223 176 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 12 June 2080 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 June 2080 at 18:02 in ♎ Libra.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 4 June 2080 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.386°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.379° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2080 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
