Moon phase and lunation details

5 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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1798"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1913".

Pink Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2096 after 23 days on 7 May 2096 at 11:06.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Capricorn ♑ on 15 April 2096 at 22:10
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 22 April 2096 at 17:43

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 1190 / 2143

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1190 of Meeus index or 2143 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1190 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 57 minutes longer than next lunation 1191 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.8°. 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 9 April 2096 at 22:20 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 23 April 2096 at 01:06 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 738 km

Moon is 398 738 km (247 764 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 311 km (222 023 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 11 April 2096 at 07:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 April 2096 at 12:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 30 March 2096 at 20:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.167°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.278° in the next southern standstill on 14 April 2096 at 12:29 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 22 April 2096 at 17:43 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
