Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2075.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 932 of Meeus index or 1885 from Brown series.
Length of current 932 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes. It is 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 933 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠145.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠170.5°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 22:32, this is 12 days after last apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 14 June 2075 at 16:13 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 358 250 km (222 606 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 258 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 106 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 19 May 2075 at 06:26 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 June 2075 at 11:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 18 May 2075 at 23:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.600°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.636° in the next southern standstill on 1 June 2075 at 07:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
