Crescent ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1816" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2020 after 13 days on 5 June 2020 at 19:12.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 17:39 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 252 of Meeus index or 1205 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 3 minutes. It is 2 hours and 11 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 19 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 44 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠229.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠263.8°.
5 days after point of apogee on 18 May 2020 at 07:45 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 June 2020 at 03:36 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 394 795 km (245 314 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 366 km (226 407 mi).
13 days after descending node on 10 May 2020 at 09:01 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 May 2020 at 21:34 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 11 May 2020 at 06:13 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.998°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.055° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 May 2020 at 21:16 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
