Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1899".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2082.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 11 May 2082 at 00:30 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 May 2082 at 04:39 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 367 437 km (228 315 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 425 km (251 919 mi).
5 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 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 May 2082 at 18:38 in ♒ Aquarius.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 1 May 2082 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.970°. Next 2 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
