Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 7 May 2094 at 14:47.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1893" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2094 after 16 days on 30 May 2094 at 00:58.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1166 of Meeus index or 2119 from Brown series.
Length of current 1166 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1167 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 8 May 2094 at 13:33 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 378 673 km (235 296 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 206 km (251 162 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 4 May 2094 at 20:35 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 17 May 2094 at 21:46 in ♋ Cancer.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.185°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.256° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2094 at 05:10 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 14 May 2094 at 12:09 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
