Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2075.
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 932 of Meeus index or 1885 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes. It is 15 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 2 hours and 33 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 30 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠145.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠170.5°.
Moon is at perigee at 22:32. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 14 June 2075 at 16:13 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 358 250 km (222 606 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 258 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 106 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after ascending node on 19 May 2075 at 06:26 in ♋ Cancer. 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 1 June 2075 at 11:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 18 May 2075 at 23:38 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.600°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-22.636° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 June 2075 at 07:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
