Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

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 ∠20° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1778"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1909".

Flower Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2083 after 10 days on 2 May 2083 at 02:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 25 April 2083 at 05:54
  • Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ on 2 May 2083 at 02:29
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 8 May 2083 at 18:30
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 16 May 2083 at 18:14

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 1030 / 1983

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1030 of Meeus index or 1983 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.67 days

Length of current 1030 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 4 minutes. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1031 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 20 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 43 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠156.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.3°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 19 April 2083 at 13:44 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 May 2083 at 12:57 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 196 km

Moon is 403 196 km (250 534 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 149 km (221 922 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 11 April 2083 at 07:14 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 25 April 2083 at 22:02 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 19:08 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.084°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.010° in its southern standstill point on 4 May 2083 at 19:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 2 May 2083 at 02:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
