Moon ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2021 after 14 days on 26 May 2021 at 11:14.
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 19:00 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 264 of Meeus index or 1217 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 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 3 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠178.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠202.3°.
Moon is at apogee at 21:54. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 27 April 2021 at 15:24 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 26 May 2021 at 01:52 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 406 512 km (252 595 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2021. It is 1 104 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 197 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after descending node on 29 April 2021 at 09:18 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 13 May 2021 at 10:29 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.
10 days since the previous standstill on 1 May 2021 at 09:37 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.591°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.640° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 May 2021 at 22:25 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
