Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 May 2097 at 18:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2097 after 12 days on 26 May 2097 at 03:36.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1204 of Meeus index or 2157 from Brown series.
Length of current 1204 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 34 minutes. It is 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1205 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:36, this is 12 days after last apogee on 30 April 2097 at 19:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 28 May 2097 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 359 702 km (223 508 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 806 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 654 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 11 May 2097 at 03:30 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 May 2097 at 05:04 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.
11 days after previous South standstill on 1 May 2097 at 12:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.535°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.518° in the next northern standstill on 14 May 2097 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 26 May 2097 at 03:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
