Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2086 after 15 days on 28 May 2086 at 12:35.
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 01:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1068 of Meeus index or 2021 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 31 minutes is the length of new lunation 1068. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 1069 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 10 May 2086 at 18:33 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 May 2086 at 15:25 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 373 248 km (231 926 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 729 km (251 487 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 1 May 2086 at 17:00 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 14 May 2086 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 2 May 2086 at 01:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.482°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.466° in the next northern standstill on 14 May 2086 at 20:32 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
