Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 9 May 2100 at 08:54.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2100 after 10 days on 23 May 2100 at 17:25.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1241 of Meeus index or 2194 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 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 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠200.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠227.5°.
6 days after point of apogee on 7 May 2100 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 22 May 2100 at 11:04 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 390 130 km (242 416 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 498 km (223 382 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 4 May 2100 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 May 2100 at 10:11 in ♍ Virgo.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 12 May 2100 at 13:36 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.277°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.230° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 May 2100 at 09:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 10 days on 23 May 2100 at 17:25 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
