Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1795"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1795" and ∠1899".

Flower Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2092 after 9 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

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 1142 / 2095

The Moon is 4 days 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 7 May 2092 at 23:16 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 May 2092 at 11:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 399 238 km

Moon is 399 238 km (248 075 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 854 km (221 739 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 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 2 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

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

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 10 May 2092 at 22:54 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.946°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.010° in the next southern standstill on 23 May 2092 at 22:16 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 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.
