Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 26 May 2097 at 03:36.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2097 after 26 days on 24 June 2097 at 19:03.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 28 May 2097 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 June 2097 at 09:12 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 404 388 km (251 275 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 390 km (222 072 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 24 May 2097 at 05:04 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 June 2097 at 13:23 in ♉ Taurus.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 28 May 2097 at 19:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.488°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.467° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2097 at 04:55 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 10 June 2097 at 02:13 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
