Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1815" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2085 after 15 days on 7 July 2085 at 10:14.
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 14:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1056 of Meeus index or 2009 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 55 minutes is the length of new lunation 1056. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1057 length.
Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠94.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
10 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2085 at 19:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2085 at 15:24 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 394 919 km (245 391 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 402 km (251 905 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 9 June 2085 at 01:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 June 2085 at 04:11 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 02:38 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.128°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.123° in its southern standstill point on 5 July 2085 at 13:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
