Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 12 May 2063 at 13:11.
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.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1807" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2063 after 26 days on 11 June 2063 at 00:43.
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 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°.
8 days 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 May 2063 at 21:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 396 638 km (246 459 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 086 km (251 087 mi).
8 days after descending node on 7 May 2063 at 10:50 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 May 2063 at 05:36 in ♓ Pisces.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 05:16 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.173°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.118° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 29 May 2063 at 11:44.
In 12 days on 28 May 2063 at 01:47 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.
