Moon phase and lunation details

2 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 passing about ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1949"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1906".

Pink Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2100 after 27 days on 23 May 2100 at 17:25.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1240 / 2193

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 1240 of Meeus index or 2193 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.69 days

Length of current 1240 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 1241 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 24 April 2100 at 02:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 May 2100 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 367 728 km

Moon is 367 728 km (228 496 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 376 km (252 510 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 21 April 2100 at 05:33 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 May 2100 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 15 April 2100 at 08:21 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.446°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.374° in the next southern standstill on 28 April 2100 at 00:08 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 9 May 2100 at 08:54 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
