Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 18 May 2091 at 13:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1838" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2091 after 11 days on 1 June 2091 at 17:31.
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 1130 of Meeus index or 2083 from Brown series.
Length of current 1130 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 1131 length.
Length of current synodic month is 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠214.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠245.7°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 15 May 2091 at 03:48 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 May 2091 at 19:30 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 389 950 km (242 304 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 863 km (224 851 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 11 May 2091 at 22:03 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 May 2091 at 06:27 in ♍ Virgo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 13:53 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.883°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.930° in its southern standstill point on 3 June 2091 at 09:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 1 June 2091 at 17:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
