Moon* ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 17 May 2100 at 02:42.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2100 after 1 day on 23 May 2100 at 17:25.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 11:04. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 7 May 2100 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 3 June 2100 at 17:09 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 359 498 km (223 382 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 010 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 858 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after descending node on 18 May 2100 at 10:11 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 May 2100 at 02:55 in ♓ Pisces.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days 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 2 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 1 day 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.
