Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 8 May 2079 at 01:37.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2079 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°.
10 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 May 2079 at 16:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 398 591 km (247 673 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 158 km (252 375 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♎ Libra at 20:46 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 28 May 2079 at 04:40 in ♉ Taurus.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 5 May 2079 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.041°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.005° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 May 2079 at 06:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 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.
