Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2088 after 14 days on 3 July 2088 at 23:22.
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 01:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1094 of Meeus index or 2047 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 1094. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2088. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1095 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.9°. 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 18 June 2088 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 July 2088 at 03:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 363 712 km (226 000 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 181 km (252 389 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 15 June 2088 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 June 2088 at 05:57 in ♏ Scorpio.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 18 June 2088 at 14:44 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.431°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.425° in the next southern standstill on 2 July 2088 at 04:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
