Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 17 April 2085 at 07:54.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2085 after 20 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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:32, this is 15 days after last apogee on 4 April 2085 at 08:13 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 May 2085 at 03:39 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 368 250 km (228 820 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 742 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 106 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 15 April 2085 at 15:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 April 2085 at 14:50 in ♊ Gemini.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2085 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.266°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.188° in the next northern standstill on 27 April 2085 at 11:39 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 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.
