Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1787" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2093 after 14 days on 9 June 2093 at 10:09.
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 06:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1155 of Meeus index or 2108 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes is the length of new lunation 1155. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 1156 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.5°. 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°).
12 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 401 046 km (249 198 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 700 km (252 090 mi).
9 days 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 14 May 2093 at 12:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.516°. Next 2 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
