Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2098 after 14 days on 13 June 2098 at 20:25.
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 18:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1217 of Meeus index or 2170 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 1217. It is 58 minutes longer than next lunation 1218 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 21 May 2098 at 09:03 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 June 2098 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 373 426 km (232 036 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 988 km (226 172 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 27 May 2098 at 09:11 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 June 2098 at 01:58 in ♎ Libra.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 18 May 2098 at 09:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.237°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.197° in the next northern standstill on 1 June 2098 at 09:59 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
