Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1868" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2090 after 13 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18.
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 07:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1118 of Meeus index or 2071 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 1118. It is 1 hour and 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1119 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 383 704 km (238 423 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 767 km (229 763 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 June 2090 at 01:10 in ♍ Virgo.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 16 May 2090 at 12:41 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.355°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.414° in the next northern standstill on 30 May 2090 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
