Crescent ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1857" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2081 after 13 days on 22 May 2081 at 20:26.
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 22:09 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1006 of Meeus index or 1959 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes is the length of new lunation 1006. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 1007 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.3°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 2 May 2081 at 14:12 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 May 2081 at 14:15 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 385 991 km (239 844 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 266 km (229 451 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 4 May 2081 at 10:34 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 May 2081 at 20:00 in ♍ Virgo.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 27 April 2081 at 11:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.521°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.437° in the next northern standstill on 11 May 2081 at 21:38 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
