Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 7 May 2096 at 11:06.

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 passing about ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1790"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1899".

Flower Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2096 after 26 days on 6 June 2096 at 02:58.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 15 May 2096 at 09:54
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 22 May 2096 at 01:35
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 28 May 2096 at 23:07
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 6 June 2096 at 02:58

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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 7 May 2096 at 00:36 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 May 2096 at 11:28 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 347 km

Moon is 400 347 km (248 764 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 865 km (222 367 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 8 May 2096 at 12:57 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 21 May 2096 at 23:32 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

15 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 27 April 2096 at 04:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.323°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.364° in the next southern standstill on 11 May 2096 at 18:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 22 May 2096 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
