Moon phase and lunation details

4 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.

Lunation 1128 / 2081

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1128 of Meeus index or 2081 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.73 days

Length of current 1128 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer than next lunation 1129 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠165.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠165.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠189.5°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 21 March 2091 at 17:48 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2091 at 03:26 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 367 732 km

Moon is 367 732 km (228 498 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 783 km (221 695 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 21:03 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 28 March 2091 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.531°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.596° in the next southern standstill on 9 April 2091 at 13:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 4 April 2091 at 01:31 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
