Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 1 April 2058 at 01:03.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2058 after 2 days on 8 April 2058 at 22:55.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Lunation 720 / 1673

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 720 of Meeus index or 1673 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 720 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 721 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠50.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 1 April 2058 at 23:36 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 April 2058 at 18:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 396 247 km

Moon is 396 247 km (246 216 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 945 km (229 873 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 30 March 2058 at 00:38 in ♊ Gemini, 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 13 April 2058 at 02:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 31 March 2058 at 23:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.018°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.135° in the next southern standstill on 14 April 2058 at 20:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 8 April 2058 at 22:55 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
