Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 1 May 2079 at 10:57.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2079 after 13 days on 15 May 2079 at 20:58.
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 981 of Meeus index or 1934 from Brown series.
Length of current 981 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 13:49, this is 12 days after last apogee on 20 April 2079 at 06:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 17 May 2079 at 16:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 359 262 km (223 235 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 246 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 094 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
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 11 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.
10 days after previous South standstill on 22 April 2079 at 00:03 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.062°. Next 2 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.
After 13 days on 15 May 2079 at 20:58 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
