Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days 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.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2079 after 10 days on 15 May 2079 at 20:58.
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 5 days 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°.
2 days after point of perigee on 2 May 2079 at 13:49 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 May 2079 at 16:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 365 671 km (227 217 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 158 km (252 375 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 30 April 2079 at 18:47 in ♈ Aries. 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 13 May 2079 at 20:46 in ♎ Libra.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 02:09 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.041°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.005° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 19 May 2079 at 06:26.
In 10 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.
