Crescent ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2023 after 15 days on 4 June 2023 at 03:42.
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 15:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 289 of Meeus index or 1242 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter 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 equal to the mean synodic month length. It is %hours_to_shortest% and %minutes_to_shortest% longer than the 21st century's shortest and %hours_to_longest% and %minutes_to_longest% shorter than the 21st century's longest synodic months.
The true anomaly is ∠92.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠127.4°.
8 days after point of perigee on 11 May 2023 at 04:57 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 May 2023 at 01:39 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 387 520 km (240 794 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 510 km (251 351 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 17 May 2023 at 19:36 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 June 2023 at 06:23 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 9 May 2023 at 09:01 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.937°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.903° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 May 2023 at 14:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
