Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1921".

Pink Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2045 after 3 days on 1 April 2045 at 18:43.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Lunation 559 / 1512

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 559 of Meeus index or 1512 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 559 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes. It is 3 hours and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 560 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠238.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠238.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.3°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:25, this is 15 days after last apogee on 13 March 2045 at 18:23 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2045 at 13:48 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 365 846 km

This perigee Moon is 365 846 km (227 326 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 338 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 510 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 22:04 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 12 April 2045 at 18:23 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2045 at 07:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.089°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.012° in the next southern standstill on 7 April 2045 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 1 April 2045 at 18:43 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
