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 ∠25° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

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 796 / 1749

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 27 May 2064 at 12:05 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 June 2064 at 09:54 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 379 515 km

Moon is 379 515 km (235 820 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 403 km (251 284 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 June 2064 at 13:10 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 10:13 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.330°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.317° in its northern standstill point on 14 June 2064 at 20:16 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 14 June 2064 at 22:20 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
