Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 May 2085 at 16:04.
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 ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2085 after 27 days on 8 June 2085 at 02:02.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
9 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 May 2085 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 373 708 km (232 211 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 231 km (229 430 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 May 2085 at 17:56 in ♐ Sagittarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 18:51 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.138°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.116° in its northern standstill point on 24 May 2085 at 19:41 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 23 May 2085 at 14:23 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
