Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 23 May 2079 at 23:15.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2079 after 17 days on 14 June 2079 at 12:39.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 17 May 2079 at 16:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 May 2079 at 23:00 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 367 453 km (228 325 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 272 km (221 999 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 04:40 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 10 June 2079 at 00:43 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 04:40 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
9 days after previous South standstill on 19 May 2079 at 06:26 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.005°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.971° in the next northern standstill on 1 June 2079 at 11:25 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 30 May 2079 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
