Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 25 May 2070 at 01:37.
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 ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2070 after 27 days on 23 June 2070 at 16:57.
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 870 of Meeus index or 1823 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes. It is 26 minutes longer 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 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠350.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠5.3°.
2 days after point of apogee on 25 May 2070 at 10:55 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 June 2070 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 403 427 km (250 678 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 376 km (222 063 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 21 May 2070 at 18:54 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 June 2070 at 03:55 in ♈ Aries.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 26 May 2070 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.834°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.846° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 June 2070 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 8 June 2070 at 18:24 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.
