Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 May 2077 at 02:38.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1874" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2077 after 14 days on 6 June 2077 at 15:07.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 957 of Meeus index or 1910 from Brown series.
Length of current 957 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 958 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠80.3°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 18 May 2077 at 19:58 in ♈ Aries. 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 30 May 2077 at 18:38 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 382 466 km (237 653 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 357 km (251 256 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 22 May 2077 at 13:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 June 2077 at 23:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 12 May 2077 at 02:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.829°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.836° in the next northern standstill on 24 May 2077 at 22:23 in ♋ Cancer.
After 14 days on 6 June 2077 at 15:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
