Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 25 May 2093 at 06:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2093 after 11 days on 9 June 2093 at 10:09.
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 1155 of Meeus index or 2108 from Brown series.
Length of current 1155 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 1156 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 21:26, this is 15 days after last perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 June 2093 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 405 700 km (252 090 mi) away from Earth. It is 292 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 009 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 15 May 2093 at 15:06 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 08:03 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠21.600°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-21.625° in its southern standstill point on 10 June 2093 at 21:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 9 June 2093 at 10:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
