Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2082 after 13 days on 10 July 2082 at 03:10.
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 05:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1020 of Meeus index or 1973 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 1020. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 1021 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.1°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2082 at 21:53 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2082 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 387 363 km (240 696 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 135 km (229 370 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 15 June 2082 at 21:23 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 June 2082 at 03:43 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 25 June 2082 at 10:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.827°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.861° in the next southern standstill on 8 July 2082 at 10:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
