Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1895".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2100.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°.
1 day after point of perigee on 22 May 2100 at 11:04 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 3 June 2100 at 17:09 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 365 984 km (227 412 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 537 km (251 989 mi).
5 days after descending node on 18 May 2100 at 10:11 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 May 2100 at 02:55 in ♓ Pisces.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-28.230° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 May 2100 at 09:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
