Crescent ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1880" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2085 after 15 days on 9 May 2085 at 16:04.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 02:59 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1055 of Meeus index or 2008 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 24 minutes is the length of new lunation 1055. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1056 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠60.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠94.1°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 19 April 2085 at 21:32 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 May 2085 at 03:39 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 381 240 km (236 892 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 189 km (251 151 mi).
8 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 April 2085 at 14:50 in ♊ Gemini.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2085 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.266°. Next 2 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
