Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2087 after 15 days on 15 July 2087 at 19:54.
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 09:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1082 of Meeus index or 2035 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 1082. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 1083 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.7°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 28 June 2087 at 01:08 in ♊ Gemini. 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 9 July 2087 at 22:18 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 372 044 km (231 177 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 488 km (251 337 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 27 June 2087 at 08:36 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 July 2087 at 23:01 in ♏ Scorpio.

1 day after previous North standstill on 29 June 2087 at 00:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.796°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.759° in the next southern standstill on 13 July 2087 at 01:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
