Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 21 May 2029 at 04:16.
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 first ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2029 after 2 days on 27 May 2029 at 18:37.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 363 of Meeus index or 1316 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 7 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 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠213.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠244.2°.
Moon is at perigee at 22:19. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 10 May 2029 at 07:00 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 361 586 km (224 679 mi) away from Earth. It is 922 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 770 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after descending node on 16 May 2029 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2029 at 17:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
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.
9 days since the previous standstill on 15 May 2029 at 15:58 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.404°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.396° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 May 2029 at 14:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 27 May 2029 at 18:37 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
