Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 28 May 2096 at 23:07.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2096 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 06:22, this is 12 days after last perigee on 21 May 2096 at 11:28 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2096 at 18:27 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 405 888 km (252 207 mi) away from Earth. It is 480 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 821 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 June 2096 at 19:21 in ♏ Scorpio.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 24 May 2096 at 13:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.358°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.345° in the next southern standstill on 8 June 2096 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 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.
