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 ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1851"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1896".

Flower Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2064 after 11 days on 30 May 2064 at 10:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 23 May 2064 at 18:15
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 30 May 2064 at 10:36
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 6 June 2064 at 23:23
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 14 June 2064 at 22:20

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 796 / 1749

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 796 of Meeus index or 1749 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 796 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 26 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute longer than next lunation 797 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 51 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠235.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠235.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠269.7°. 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 apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces. 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 27 May 2064 at 12:05 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 387 270 km

Moon is 387 270 km (240 638 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 280 km (226 974 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 8 May 2064 at 10:23 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 May 2064 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 13:54 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.360°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.330° in its southern standstill point on 31 May 2064 at 10:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 30 May 2064 at 10:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
