Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 2 May 2083 at 02:29.

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 ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1965"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1902".

Flower Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2083 after 26 days on 31 May 2083 at 09:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 8 May 2083 at 18:30
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 16 May 2083 at 18:14
  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 24 May 2083 at 18:11
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 31 May 2083 at 09:42

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 1030 / 1983

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 2 May 2083 at 12:57 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 May 2083 at 17:26 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 784 km

Moon is 364 784 km (226 666 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 663 km (252 689 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 25 April 2083 at 22:02 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 May 2083 at 08:03 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

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 19:46 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.010°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.923° in its northern standstill point on 19 May 2083 at 00:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 16 May 2083 at 18:14 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
