Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 5 May 2063 at 15:20.
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 about ∠11° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2063 after 5 days on 12 May 2063 at 13:11.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 783 of Meeus index or 1736 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes. It is 2 hours and 16 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 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠270.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠301.9°.
1 day after point of perigee on 6 May 2063 at 19:05 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 May 2063 at 21:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 364 516 km (226 500 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 086 km (251 087 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 10:50 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 21 May 2063 at 05:36 in ♓ Pisces.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 2 May 2063 at 05:04 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.247°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.173° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 May 2063 at 05:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 days on 12 May 2063 at 13:11 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.
