Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 30 May 2022 at 11:30.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2022 after 11 days on 14 June 2022 at 11:52.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 277 of Meeus index or 1230 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2022. It is 19 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 25 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠155.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠178.8°.
Moon is at apogee at 01:14. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 17 May 2022 at 15:23 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 14 June 2022 at 23:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 191 km (252 395 mi) away from Earth. It is 783 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 518 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after ascending node on 29 May 2022 at 02:33 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 June 2022 at 10:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 1 June 2022 at 22:32 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.943°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.924° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 June 2022 at 10:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 11 days on 14 June 2022 at 11:52 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
