Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 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 about ∠21° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2094 after 8 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 6 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:13, this is 13 days after last perigee on 8 May 2094 at 13:33 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 2 June 2094 at 22:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 404 206 km (251 162 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2094. It is 1 202 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 155 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 17 May 2094 at 21:46 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 June 2094 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 18 May 2094 at 05:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.256°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.296° in the next southern standstill on 1 June 2094 at 08:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 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.
