Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 7 May 2060 at 09:19.
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 first ∠1° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2060 after 2 days on 15 May 2060 at 13:39.
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 746 of Meeus index or 1699 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2060. It is 22 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 4 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠13.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠31.3°.
1 day after point of apogee on 12 May 2060 at 04:06 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 May 2060 at 20:38 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 405 059 km (251 692 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 061 km (224 974 mi).
13 days after ascending node on 30 April 2060 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 May 2060 at 03:03 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 4 May 2060 at 05:51 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.728°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.700° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 May 2060 at 20:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 15 May 2060 at 13:39 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
