Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 28 April 2086 at 22:35.
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 ∠11° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2086 after 27 days on 28 May 2086 at 12:35.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1067 of Meeus index or 2020 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2086. It is 43 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠18.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠37.1°.
6 days after point of apogee on 24 April 2086 at 22:37 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 May 2086 at 18:33 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 389 186 km (241 829 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 362 km (225 783 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 17:00 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 14 May 2086 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.
At 17:00 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
14 days since the previous standstill on 17 April 2086 at 10:50 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.550°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-22.482° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 May 2086 at 01:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 11 days on 13 May 2086 at 01:41 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.
