Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 30 May 2081 at 15:35.
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 ∠22° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2081 after 15 days on 21 June 2081 at 07:32.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1006 of Meeus index or 1959 from Brown series.
Length of current 1006 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. 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 30 May 2081 at 09:21 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 June 2081 at 17:00 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 388 564 km (241 442 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 270 km (228 832 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 31 May 2081 at 13:42 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 13 June 2081 at 20:45 in ♍ Virgo.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 24 May 2081 at 19:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.376°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.340° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2081 at 04:25 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 7 June 2081 at 09:01 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
