Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1906" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2094.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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 apogee on 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 June 2094 at 22:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 376 044 km (233 663 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 459 km (228 328 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 June 2094 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 18 May 2094 at 05:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.256°. Next day 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
