Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 3 June 2078 at 10:38.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2078 after 18 days on 25 June 2078 at 10:22.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 969 of Meeus index or 1922 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 53 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2078. It is 26 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 4 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠11.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠29°.
13 days after point of apogee on 23 May 2078 at 17:11 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 June 2078 at 07:36 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 363 461 km (225 844 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 533 km (224 646 mi).
12 days after descending node on 25 May 2078 at 11:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 June 2078 at 00:37 in ♉ Taurus.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 29 May 2078 at 11:05 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.084°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.059° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 June 2078 at 07:53 in ♋ Cancer.
In 3 days on 10 June 2078 at 01:49 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.
