Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 17 May 2089 at 03:01.

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 is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1922"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1922" and ∠1896".

Flower Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2089 after 4 days on 24 May 2089 at 10:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 24 May 2089 at 10:18
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 1 June 2089 at 12:49
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 8 June 2089 at 18:44
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 15 June 2089 at 09:09

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 1105 / 2058

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1105 of Meeus index or 2058 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.36 days

Length of current 1105 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1106 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.7°. 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

5 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2089 at 16:16 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 May 2089 at 11:27 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 372 853 km

Moon is 372 853 km (231 680 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 001 km (251 656 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 8 May 2089 at 01:13 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 May 2089 at 20:14 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 12 May 2089 at 20:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.534°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.583° in the next southern standstill on 26 May 2089 at 04:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 24 May 2089 at 10:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
