Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 26 April 2091 at 18:20.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2091 after 1 day on 3 May 2091 at 09:46.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1129 of Meeus index or 2082 from Brown series.
Length of current 1129 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1130 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠189.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.7°. 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 14:03, this is 14 days after last apogee on 17 April 2091 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 May 2091 at 03:48 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 358 058 km (222 487 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 450 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 298 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 29 April 2091 at 04:04 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 May 2091 at 22:03 in ♓ Pisces.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 24 April 2091 at 07:29 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.701°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.782° in the next southern standstill on 6 May 2091 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 3 May 2091 at 09:46 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
