Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and growing larger. The 14 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 31 May 2028 at 07:37.
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 ∠7° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2028 after 1 day on 7 June 2028 at 06:09.
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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 351 of Meeus index or 1304 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 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 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 36 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠278.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠308.1°.
6 days after point of perigee on 31 May 2028 at 06:18 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 June 2028 at 04:46 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 381 997 km (237 362 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 222 km (251 172 mi).
9 days after descending node on 28 May 2028 at 00:41 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 10 June 2028 at 02:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 25 May 2028 at 14:09 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.917°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-25.908° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 June 2028 at 11:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 7 June 2028 at 06:09 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.
