Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2093 after 22 days on 9 June 2093 at 10:09.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1154 of Meeus index or 2107 from Brown series.
Length of current 1154 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1155 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠142°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 367 980 km (228 652 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 700 km (252 090 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 15 May 2093 at 15:06 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.

2 days after previous South standstill on 14 May 2093 at 12:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.516°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.600° in the next northern standstill on 28 May 2093 at 08:03 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 25 May 2093 at 06:07 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
