Moon ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 27 April 2046 at 23:30.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2046 after 15 days on 20 May 2046 at 03:15.
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 572 of Meeus index or 1525 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 38 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 2 hours and 20 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 43 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠209.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠239.2°.
3 days after point of apogee on 1 May 2046 at 03:41 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 May 2046 at 23:31 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 400 917 km (249 118 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 910 km (227 366 mi).
6 days after ascending node on 28 April 2046 at 02:09 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 May 2046 at 07:55 in ♌ Leo.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 24 April 2046 at 09:26 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.852°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.750° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 May 2046 at 23:01 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 6 May 2046 at 02:56 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.
