Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 28 April 2029 at 10:37.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2029 after 28 days on 27 May 2029 at 18:37.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 362 of Meeus index or 1315 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 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 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠188.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠213.4°.
1 day after point of perigee on 27 April 2029 at 16:24 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 May 2029 at 07:00 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 367 103 km (228 107 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 125 km (252 354 mi).
9 days after descending node on 19 April 2029 at 21:27 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 May 2029 at 09:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
24 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 18 April 2029 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.526°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-24.466° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 May 2029 at 04:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 14 days on 13 May 2029 at 13:42 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
