Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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 ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1931" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2059 after 16 days on 27 May 2059 at 08:04.
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 733 of Meeus index or 1686 from Brown series.
Length of current 733 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 47 minutes. It is 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 734 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 12 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠30°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠53.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of perigee on 8 May 2059 at 06:41 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 May 2059 at 06:41 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 371 253 km (230 686 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 327 km (251 237 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 29 April 2059 at 07:01 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 May 2059 at 04:37 in ♉ Taurus.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 2 May 2059 at 11:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.654°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.665° in the next northern standstill on 15 May 2059 at 08:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 11 May 2059 at 19:15 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
