Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1899".

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2062 after 11 days on 23 May 2062 at 07:03.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 15 May 2062 at 18:17
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 23 May 2062 at 07:03
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 31 May 2062 at 10:44
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 7 June 2062 at 11:12

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 771 / 1724

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 771 of Meeus index or 1724 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.33 days

Length of current 771 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 772 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠325.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠325.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.6°. 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 06:10, this is 11 days after last apogee on 29 April 2062 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 May 2062 at 00:01 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 362 785 km

This perigee Moon is 362 785 km (225 424 mi) away from Earth. It is 277 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 571 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 5 May 2062 at 16:29 in ♓ Pisces, 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 18 May 2062 at 08:14 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 22:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.528°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.459° in its southern standstill point on 25 May 2062 at 13:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 23 May 2062 at 07:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
