Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2099 after 16 days on 3 June 2099 at 03:37.
The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1228 of Meeus index or 2181 from Brown series.

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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 14 May 2099 at 02:22 in ♓ Pisces. 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 29 May 2099 at 07:58 in ♎ Libra.

9 days after previous South standstill on 8 May 2099 at 02:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.539°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.471° in the next northern standstill on 22 May 2099 at 13:50 in ♊ Gemini.
