Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 1 May 2079 at 10:57.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2079 after 13 days on 15 May 2079 at 20:58.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 981 of Meeus index or 1934 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. It is 54 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 5 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠341.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠356.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 13:49. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 20 April 2079 at 06:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 17 May 2079 at 16:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 359 262 km (223 235 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 246 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 094 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 30 April 2079 at 18:47 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 May 2079 at 20:46 in ♎ Libra.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 22 April 2079 at 00:03 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.062°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.041° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 May 2079 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer.
In 13 days on 15 May 2079 at 20:58 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
