Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1899".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2074.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 919 of Meeus index or 1872 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 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 3 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠170.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠193.2°.
Moon is at perigee at 01:01. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 27 April 2074 at 09:29 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 24 May 2074 at 11:59 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 356 815 km (221 715 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2074. It is 5 693 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 390 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after ascending node on 3 May 2074 at 18:36 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 16 May 2074 at 05:00 in ♒ Aquarius.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 1 May 2074 at 15:56 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.782°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.864° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 May 2074 at 10:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
