Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1815"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1815" and ∠1907".

Pink Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2054 after 26 days on 21 May 2054 at 15:16.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 29 April 2054 at 20:46

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 671 / 1624

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 671 of Meeus index or 1624 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 671 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 48 minutes longer than next lunation 672 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠254.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠254.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠288.9°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 18 April 2054 at 00:58 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 April 2054 at 05:45 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 394 877 km

Moon is 394 877 km (245 365 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 138 km (251 120 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 18 April 2054 at 05:03 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 May 2054 at 00:18 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 13 April 2054 at 23:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.839°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.930° in the next southern standstill on 27 April 2054 at 01:47 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 7 May 2054 at 17:00 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
