Moon* ♏ Scorpio
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 98% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 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 about ∠18° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2029 after 1 day 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 13 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°.
1 day after point of perigee on 25 May 2029 at 22:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 365 531 km (227 130 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 105 km (251 721 mi).
9 days after descending node on 16 May 2029 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini. 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 29 May 2029 at 17:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
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.
10 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 2 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 1 day 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.
