Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 1 May 2085 at 20:52.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2085 after 5 days on 9 May 2085 at 16:04.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1055 of Meeus index or 2008 from Brown series.
Length of current 1055 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 24 minutes. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 2 May 2085 at 03:39 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 May 2085 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 402 813 km (250 296 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 231 km (229 430 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 28 April 2085 at 14:50 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 May 2085 at 17:56 in ♐ Sagittarius.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 27 April 2085 at 11:39 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.188°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.138° in the next southern standstill on 11 May 2085 at 18:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 5 days on 9 May 2085 at 16:04 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
