Crescent ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2097 after 14 days on 26 May 2097 at 03:36.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 18:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1204 of Meeus index or 2157 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 34 minutes. It is 50 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠339.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠355.1°.
10 days after point of apogee on 30 April 2097 at 19:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 May 2097 at 00:36 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 367 174 km (228 151 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 702 km (223 508 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 03:30 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 24 May 2097 at 05:04 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 03:30 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
9 days since the previous standstill on 1 May 2097 at 12:40 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.535°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.518° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 May 2097 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
