Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 24 April 2089 at 21:22.
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 ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2089 after 25 days on 24 May 2089 at 10:18.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1104 of Meeus index or 2057 from Brown series.
Length of current 1104 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 1105 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
10 days after point of perigee on 17 April 2089 at 16:01 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 May 2089 at 17:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 400 783 km (249 035 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 330 km (251 239 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 23 April 2089 at 14:43 in ♎ Libra, 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 8 May 2089 at 01:13 in ♈ Aries.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 19:54 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.489°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.534° in its northern standstill point on 12 May 2089 at 20:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 10 May 2089 at 10:03 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
