Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 30 April 2081 at 21:24.
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 ∠18° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2081 after 16 days on 22 May 2081 at 20:26.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1005 of Meeus index or 1958 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 54 minutes. It is 3 hours and 1 minute 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 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠231.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠265.8°.
3 days after point of apogee on 2 May 2081 at 14:12 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 17 May 2081 at 14:15 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 398 736 km (247 763 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 266 km (229 451 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 4 May 2081 at 10:34 in ♓ Pisces. 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 17 May 2081 at 20:00 in ♍ Virgo.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 27 April 2081 at 11:19 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.521°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.437° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 May 2081 at 21:38 in ♊ Gemini.
In 2 days on 8 May 2081 at 22:09 in ♉ Taurus 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.
