Crescent ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2082 after 13 days on 12 May 2082 at 09:49.
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 02:02 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1018 of Meeus index or 1971 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 1018. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1019 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠203.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠231.3°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 25 April 2082 at 15:39 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 May 2082 at 00:30 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 402 451 km (250 071 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 931 km (223 651 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 22 April 2082 at 17:02 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 7 May 2082 at 01:12 in ♍ Virgo.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 17 April 2082 at 07:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.081°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.970° in the next northern standstill on 1 May 2082 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
