Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 23 May 2079 at 23:15.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2079 after 19 days on 14 June 2079 at 12:39.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
8 days 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 May 2079 at 23:00 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 375 192 km (233 134 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 272 km (221 999 mi).
12 days after descending node on 13 May 2079 at 20:46 in ♎ Libra. 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 28 May 2079 at 04:40 in ♉ Taurus.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 19 May 2079 at 06:26 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.005°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.971° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 June 2079 at 11:25 in ♋ Cancer.
In 4 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.
