Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 23 May 2085 at 14:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1825" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2085 after 14 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1056 of Meeus index or 2009 from Brown series.
Length of current 1056 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1057 length.
Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠94.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.7°. 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 perigee on 14 May 2085 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 May 2085 at 22:33 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 392 817 km (244 085 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 479 km (251 332 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 12 May 2085 at 17:56 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 May 2085 at 20:55 in ♊ Gemini.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 19:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.116°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.119° in its southern standstill point on 8 June 2085 at 03:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 14 days on 8 June 2085 at 02:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
