Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 26 May 2095 at 17:17.
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 first ∠0° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2095 after 18 days on 17 June 2095 at 22:05.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1179 of Meeus index or 2132 from Brown series.
Length of current 1179 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than next lunation 1180 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠47.3°. 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 perigee on this date at 08:46, this is 15 days after last apogee on 14 May 2095 at 12:49 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 11 June 2095 at 06:34 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 365 631 km (227 193 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 123 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 725 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 21 May 2095 at 00:04 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 June 2095 at 21:43 in ♊ Gemini.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 22 May 2095 at 16:48 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.914°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.917° in the next northern standstill on 4 June 2095 at 12:12 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 2 June 2095 at 09:58 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
