Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 10 April 2085 at 03:41.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1907" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2085 after 26 days on 9 May 2085 at 16:04.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1054 of Meeus index or 2007 from Brown series.
Length of current 1054 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1055 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠35.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠60.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
9 days after point of apogee on 4 April 2085 at 08:13 in ♌ Leo. 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 19 April 2085 at 21:32 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 375 923 km (233 588 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 250 km (228 820 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 1 April 2085 at 11:26 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 April 2085 at 15:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 31 March 2085 at 03:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.388°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.266° in the next southern standstill on 14 April 2085 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 days on 24 April 2085 at 02:59 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
