Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1892" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2081 after 13 days on 21 June 2081 at 07:32.
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 09:01 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1007 of Meeus index or 1960 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 1007. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1008 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠298.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.9°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 30 May 2081 at 09:21 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 June 2081 at 17:00 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 378 889 km (235 431 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 270 km (228 832 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 31 May 2081 at 13:42 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2081 at 20:45 in ♍ Virgo.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 24 May 2081 at 19:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.376°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.340° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2081 at 04:25 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
