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 passing about ∠15° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1907".

Flower Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2096 after 13 days on 7 May 2096 at 11:06.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 29 April 2096 at 10:49
  • Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ on 7 May 2096 at 11:06
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 15 May 2096 at 09:54
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 22 May 2096 at 01:35

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 1191 / 2144

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 1191 of Meeus index or 2144 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.33 days

Length of current 1191 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 52 minutes. It is 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1192 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠354.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 01:06, this is 13 days after last apogee on 9 April 2096 at 22:20 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 7 May 2096 at 00:36 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 311 km

This perigee Moon is 357 311 km (222 023 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 197 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 045 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 April 2096 at 12:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2096 at 12:29 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.278°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.323° in the next northern standstill on 27 April 2096 at 04:25 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 7 May 2096 at 11:06 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
