Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 13 May 2052 at 19:00.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1782" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2052 after 26 days on 12 June 2052 at 10:27.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 647 of Meeus index or 1600 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 29 minutes. It is 29 minutes longer 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 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠352.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠7.2°.
2 days after point of apogee on 13 May 2052 at 20:41 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 May 2052 at 00:39 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 402 251 km (249 947 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 494 km (222 136 mi).
6 days after ascending node on 10 May 2052 at 10:36 in ♎ Libra. 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 24 May 2052 at 19:07 in ♈ Aries.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 13:00 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.443°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.475° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 29 May 2052 at 16:35.
In 11 days on 28 May 2052 at 10:50 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.
