Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1909" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2089 after 13 days on 24 May 2089 at 10:18.
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 10:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1105 of Meeus index or 2058 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 1105. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1106 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of apogee on 1 May 2089 at 17:52 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 May 2089 at 16:16 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 375 407 km (233 267 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 247 km (227 575 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 8 May 2089 at 01:13 in ♈ Aries, 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 20 May 2089 at 20:14 in ♎ Libra.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 28 April 2089 at 19:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.489°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.534° in the next northern standstill on 12 May 2089 at 20:53 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
