Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 5 May 2059 at 01:29.
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 ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2059 after 18 days on 27 May 2059 at 08:04.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 733 of Meeus index or 1686 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 47 minutes. It is 55 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 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 12 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠30°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠53.2°.
Moon is at perigee at 06:41. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 22 April 2059 at 12:03 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 20 May 2059 at 06:41 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 366 831 km (227 938 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 323 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 525 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 29 April 2059 at 07:01 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 12 May 2059 at 04:37 in ♉ Taurus.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 2 May 2059 at 11:32 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.654°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.665° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 May 2059 at 08:44 in ♋ Cancer.
In 3 days on 11 May 2059 at 19:15 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.
