Moon* ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 31 May 2043 at 19:25.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2043 after 16 days on 22 June 2043 at 14:20.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 536 of Meeus index or 1489 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 14 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2043. It is 2 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 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 39 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠0.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠15.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 11:59. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 22 May 2043 at 14:46 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 18 June 2043 at 23:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 358 682 km (222 875 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 826 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 674 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 2 June 2043 at 17:02 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 June 2043 at 09:52 in ♎ Libra.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 26 May 2043 at 08:52 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.459°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠28.431° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 June 2043 at 09:54 in ♋ Cancer.
In 1 day on 7 June 2043 at 10:35 in ♊ Gemini 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.
