Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1869" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2094 after 15 days on 30 May 2094 at 00:58.
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 12:09 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1167 of Meeus index or 2120 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 1167. It is 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 1168 length.
Length of current synodic month is 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠74.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.9°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 8 May 2094 at 13:33 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 383 472 km (238 278 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 206 km (251 162 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 4 May 2094 at 20:35 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 May 2094 at 21:46 in ♋ Cancer.

9 days after previous South standstill on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.185°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.256° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2094 at 05:10 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
