Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1892".

Flower Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2083 after 1 day on 31 May 2083 at 09:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 31 May 2083 at 09:42
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 7 June 2083 at 06:29
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 15 June 2083 at 09:37
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 23 June 2083 at 02:52

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 1031 / 1984

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1031 of Meeus index or 1984 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1031 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 1032 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠180.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠180.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.8°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 23:07, this is 14 days after last apogee on 16 May 2083 at 17:26 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 12 June 2083 at 22:19 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 245 km

This perigee Moon is 357 245 km (221 982 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 263 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 111 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 22 May 2083 at 23:17 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 2083 at 11:34 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 19 May 2083 at 00:24 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.923°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.909° in the next southern standstill on 1 June 2083 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 31 May 2083 at 09:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
