Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 22 May 2096 at 01:35.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2096 after 12 days on 6 June 2096 at 02:58.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1192 of Meeus index or 2145 from Brown series.
Length of current 1192 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2096. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1193 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.7°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 21 May 2096 at 11:28 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 370 628 km (230 298 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 888 km (252 207 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 21 May 2096 at 23:32 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 June 2096 at 19:21 in ♏ Scorpio.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 13:59 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.358°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.345° in its southern standstill point on 8 June 2096 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 6 June 2096 at 02:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
