Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 12 May 2084 at 23:43.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1828"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1828" and ∠1898".

Flower Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2084 after 5 days on 20 May 2084 at 02:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 20 May 2084 at 02:36
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 26 May 2084 at 17:35
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 3 June 2084 at 10:13
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 11 June 2084 at 14:03

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 1043 / 1996

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1043 of Meeus index or 1996 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1043 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 41 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1044 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠128.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠128.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157°. 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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 9 May 2084 at 08:15 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 May 2084 at 12:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 392 069 km

Moon is 392 069 km (243 620 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 060 km (223 731 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 10 May 2084 at 08:57 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 May 2084 at 12:47 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 7 May 2084 at 17:28 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.673°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.645° in the next southern standstill on 21 May 2084 at 11:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 20 May 2084 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
