Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2089 after 14 days on 22 July 2089 at 14:50.
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 01:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1107 of Meeus index or 2060 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 40 minutes is the length of new lunation 1107. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2089. It is 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 1108 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.5°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:12, this is 12 days after last apogee on 26 June 2089 at 00:52 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 23 July 2089 at 06:57 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 994 km (222 447 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 514 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 362 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its descending node on 1 July 2089 at 11:25 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 July 2089 at 23:07 in ♎ Libra.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 6 July 2089 at 18:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.574°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.541° in the next southern standstill on 19 July 2089 at 19:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
