Moon ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 18 May 2097 at 09:14.
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 ∠16° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2097 after 1 day on 26 May 2097 at 03:36.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2097 at 00:36 in ♊ Gemini. 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 28 May 2097 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 400 061 km (248 586 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 101 km (252 339 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♏ Scorpio at 05:04 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 7 June 2097 at 13:23 in ♉ Taurus.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 14 May 2097 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.518°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.488° in the next southern standstill on 28 May 2097 at 19:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
