Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1901".

Flower Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2092 after 13 days on 21 May 2092 at 10:00.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 14 May 2092 at 16:06
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 21 May 2092 at 10:00
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 28 May 2092 at 03:46
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 5 June 2092 at 05:17

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 1142 / 2095

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1142 of Meeus index or 2095 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 1142 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 39 minutes. It is 46 minutes longer than next lunation 1143 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠167.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. 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 apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 23:16, this is 14 days after last perigee on 23 April 2092 at 01:16 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 May 2092 at 11:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 537 km

This apogee Moon is 406 537 km (252 610 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 129 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 172 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 29 April 2092 at 12:00 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 May 2092 at 03:08 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 26 April 2092 at 12:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.820°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.946° in the next northern standstill on 10 May 2092 at 22:54 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 21 May 2092 at 10:00 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
