Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1879" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2099 after 14 days on 2 July 2099 at 14:21.
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 16:10 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1230 of Meeus index or 2183 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes is the length of new lunation 1230. It is 57 minutes longer than next lunation 1231 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠294.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠320.2°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 10 June 2099 at 21:17 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 June 2099 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 381 432 km (237 011 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 734 km (229 121 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 11 June 2099 at 21:49 in ♓ Pisces, 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 25 June 2099 at 06:00 in ♎ Libra.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 20:43 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.404°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.409° in its southern standstill point on 1 July 2099 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
