Moon* ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 5 May 2082 at 19:04.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2082 after 1 day on 12 May 2082 at 09:49.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1018 of Meeus index or 1971 from Brown series.
Length of current 1018 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 45 minutes. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:30, this is 15 days after last apogee on 25 April 2082 at 15:39 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 23 May 2082 at 04:39 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 359 931 km (223 651 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 577 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 425 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 7 May 2082 at 01:12 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 May 2082 at 18:38 in ♒ Aquarius.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 1 May 2082 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.970°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.907° in the next southern standstill on 14 May 2082 at 17:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 12 May 2082 at 09:49 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
