Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 14 May 2094 at 12:09.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2094 after 12 days on 30 May 2094 at 00:58.
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 1167 of Meeus index or 2120 from Brown series.
Length of current 1167 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 1168 length.
Length of current synodic month is 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠74.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.9°. 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°).
8 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 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 396 942 km (246 648 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 206 km (251 162 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 21:46 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 1 June 2094 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 21:46 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
12 days after previous South standstill on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.185°. Next day 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 12 days on 30 May 2094 at 00:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
