Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2084 after 14 days on 18 June 2084 at 10:00.
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 10:13 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1044 of Meeus index or 1997 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 25 minutes is the length of new lunation 1044. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1045 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠157°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 21 May 2084 at 12:03 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 June 2084 at 20:10 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 403 488 km (250 716 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 150 km (252 370 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 23 May 2084 at 12:47 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 6 June 2084 at 12:27 in ♋ Cancer.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 23:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.616°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.635° in its southern standstill point on 17 June 2084 at 21:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
