Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1838"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1838" and ∠1900".

Flower Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2091 after 23 days on 1 June 2091 at 17:31.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 10 May 2091 at 08:36
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 18 May 2091 at 13:07
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 26 May 2091 at 02:42
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 1 June 2091 at 17:31

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 1129 / 2082

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1129 of Meeus index or 2082 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 1129 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1130 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠189.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠189.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.7°. 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 before apogee

6 days after point of perigee on 2 May 2091 at 14:03 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 May 2091 at 03:48 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 389 887 km

Moon is 389 887 km (242 265 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 973 km (252 260 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 29 April 2091 at 04:04 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 May 2091 at 22:03 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 6 May 2091 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.782°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.883° in the next northern standstill on 21 May 2091 at 13:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 18 May 2091 at 13:07 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
