Moon phase and lunation details

4 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 leaving the last ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1896"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1896" and ∠1911".

Pink Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2082 after 24 days on 12 May 2082 at 09:49.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1017 / 1970

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1017 of Meeus index or 1970 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.71 days

Length of current 1017 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 57 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 1018 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠179.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠179.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.1°. 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

4 days after point of perigee on 12 April 2082 at 15:53 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 April 2082 at 15:39 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 378 069 km

Moon is 378 069 km (234 921 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 316 km (252 473 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 9 April 2082 at 20:43 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 April 2082 at 17:02 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

21 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 07:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.081°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.970° in its northern standstill point on 1 May 2082 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 28 April 2082 at 02:02 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
