Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1828" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2091 after 13 days on 1 July 2091 at 01:54.
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 02:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1131 of Meeus index or 2084 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 35 minutes is the length of new lunation 1131. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 1132 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠245.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2091 at 19:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 June 2091 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 392 028 km (243 595 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 857 km (227 954 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 7 June 2091 at 23:53 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 June 2091 at 07:10 in ♍ Virgo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 21:16 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.975°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.969° in its southern standstill point on 30 June 2091 at 20:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
