Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 10 May 2089 at 10:03.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2089 after 10 days on 24 May 2089 at 10:18.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1105 of Meeus index or 2058 from Brown series.
Length of current 1105 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1106 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 16:16, this is 11 days after last apogee on 1 May 2089 at 17:52 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 29 May 2089 at 11:27 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 366 247 km (227 575 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 739 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 109 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 8 May 2089 at 01:13 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 May 2089 at 20:14 in ♎ Libra.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 12 May 2089 at 20:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.534°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.583° in the next southern standstill on 26 May 2089 at 04:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 days on 24 May 2089 at 10:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
