Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 19 May 2082 at 12:58.
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 first ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2082 after 19 days on 10 June 2082 at 17:55.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
11 days 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 May 2082 at 04:39 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 405 066 km (251 696 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 425 km (251 919 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 19 May 2082 at 18:38 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 June 2082 at 02:08 in ♍ Virgo.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 14 May 2082 at 17:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.907°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.839° in the next northern standstill on 29 May 2082 at 04:33 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 27 May 2082 at 16:47 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
