Moon* ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 17 May 2100 at 02:42.
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 ∠14° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2100 after 1 day on 23 May 2100 at 17:25.
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 1241 of Meeus index or 2194 from Brown series.
Length of current 1241 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1242 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠200.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠227.5°. 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 11:04, this is 15 days after last apogee on 7 May 2100 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 June 2100 at 17:09 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 359 498 km (223 382 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 010 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 858 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 18 May 2100 at 10:11 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 May 2100 at 02:55 in ♓ Pisces.
18 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 12 May 2100 at 13:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.277°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.230° in the next southern standstill on 25 May 2100 at 09:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 23 May 2100 at 17:25 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
