Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1919"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1898".

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2035 after 7 days on 22 May 2035 at 04:26.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 22 May 2035 at 04:26
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 30 May 2035 at 07:31

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 437 / 1390

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 437 of Meeus index or 1390 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 437 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 17 minutes. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 438 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 9 May 2035 at 03:09 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 May 2035 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 373 440 km

Moon is 373 440 km (232 045 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 138 km (252 362 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 May 2035 at 19:31 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 10 May 2035 at 23:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.691°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.782° in the next southern standstill on 25 May 2035 at 00:53 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 22 May 2035 at 04:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
