Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

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 ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1903".

Pink Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2075 after 26 days on 30 May 2075 at 02:38.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 7 May 2075 at 09:59

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 931 / 1884

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 931 of Meeus index or 1884 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 931 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 932 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠113.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠113.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 2 May 2075 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 520 km

Moon is 363 520 km (225 881 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 811 km (252 159 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 22 April 2075 at 03:55 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 May 2075 at 05:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 21 April 2075 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.404°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.503° in the next southern standstill on 4 May 2075 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 14 May 2075 at 23:22 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
