Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2098 after 13 days on 13 July 2098 at 10:35.
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 02:06 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1218 of Meeus index or 2171 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 1218. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2098. It is 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 1219 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 18 June 2098 at 01:07 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2098 at 07:43 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 365 339 km (227 011 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 588 km (223 438 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 23 June 2098 at 14:19 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 July 2098 at 02:56 in ♎ Libra.

1 day after previous North standstill on 28 June 2098 at 19:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.163°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.167° in the next southern standstill on 11 July 2098 at 22:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
