Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 15 May 2079 at 20:58.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2079 after 26 days on 14 June 2079 at 12:39.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
1 day after point of apogee on 17 May 2079 at 16:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 May 2079 at 23:00 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 403 481 km (250 711 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 272 km (221 999 mi).
5 days after descending node on 13 May 2079 at 20:46 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 May 2079 at 04:40 in ♉ Taurus.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 06:26 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.005°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.971° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 1 June 2079 at 11:25.
In 11 days on 30 May 2079 at 18:41 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.
