Crescent ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2079 after 14 days on 15 May 2079 at 20:58.
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 10:57 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 981 of Meeus index or 1934 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes is the length of new lunation 981. It is 54 minutes longer than next lunation 982 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠341.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠356.9°. 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 20 April 2079 at 06:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 2 May 2079 at 13:49 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 365 766 km (227 276 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 262 km (223 235 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 30 April 2079 at 18:47 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 May 2079 at 20:46 in ♎ Libra.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 22 April 2079 at 00:03 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.062°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.041° in the next northern standstill on 5 May 2079 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
