Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2087 after 14 days on 16 June 2087 at 06:58.
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 01:38 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1081 of Meeus index or 2034 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 52 minutes is the length of new lunation 1081. It is 57 minutes shorter than next lunation 1082 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠19°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.8°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 30 May 2087 at 22:29 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 June 2087 at 06:07 in ♏ Scorpio.

1 day after its descending node on 31 May 2087 at 00:23 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 June 2087 at 18:16 in ♏ Scorpio.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 14:09 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.809°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.814° in its southern standstill point on 15 June 2087 at 17:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
