Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 April 2096 at 17:43.
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 ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2096 after 13 days on 7 May 2096 at 11:06.
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 1191 of Meeus index or 2144 from Brown series.
Length of current 1191 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 52 minutes. It is 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1192 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 01:06, this is 13 days after last apogee on 9 April 2096 at 22:20 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 7 May 2096 at 00:36 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 357 311 km (222 023 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 197 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 045 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 11 April 2096 at 07:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 24 April 2096 at 12:49 in ♊ Gemini.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2096 at 12:29 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.278°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.323° in the next northern standstill on 27 April 2096 at 04:25 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 7 May 2096 at 11:06 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
