Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 2 June 2044 at 18:33.
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 ∠25° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1787" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2044 after 2 days on 10 June 2044 at 15:16.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 549 of Meeus index or 1502 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2044. It is 1 minute 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 59 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 10 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠345.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠0.7°.
11 days after point of perigee on 28 May 2044 at 00:15 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 11 June 2044 at 18:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 401 035 km (249 192 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 330 km (252 482 mi).
5 days after descending node on 3 June 2044 at 00:16 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 17 June 2044 at 14:53 in ♓ Pisces.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 28 May 2044 at 13:39 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.322°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.277° at the point of next southern standstill on 11 June 2044 at 06:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 10 June 2044 at 15:16 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.
