Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

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 ♎ Libra

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♏ Scorpio later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1964"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1893".

Flower Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2064 after 2 days on 30 May 2064 at 10:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • 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
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 21 June 2064 at 23:13

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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 12:05, this is 15 days after last apogee on 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 8 June 2064 at 09:54 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 280 km

This perigee Moon is 365 280 km (226 974 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 772 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 076 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 22 May 2064 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 June 2064 at 13:10 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 18 May 2064 at 13:54 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.360°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.330° in the next southern standstill on 31 May 2064 at 10:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 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.
