Moon ♏ Scorpio
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1902".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2099.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1228 of Meeus index or 2181 from Brown series.
Length of current 1228 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1229 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠227.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠261.4°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 2 May 2099 at 05:55 in ♎ Libra. 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 14 May 2099 at 02:22 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 371 625 km (230 917 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 556 km (251 379 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 2 May 2099 at 00:59 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 May 2099 at 18:40 in ♓ Pisces.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 25 April 2099 at 08:16 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.599°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.539° in the next southern standstill on 8 May 2099 at 02:14 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
