Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2100 after 12 days on 23 May 2100 at 17:25.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 17 May 2100 at 02:42
  • Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ on 23 May 2100 at 17:25
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 30 May 2100 at 19:35

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 1241 / 2194

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1241 of Meeus index or 2194 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1241 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1242 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠200.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠200.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠227.5°. 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

4 days after point of apogee on 7 May 2100 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries. 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 22 May 2100 at 11:04 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 212 km

Moon is 398 212 km (247 437 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 498 km (223 382 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 4 May 2100 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 May 2100 at 10:11 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 28 April 2100 at 00:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.374°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.277° in the next northern standstill on 12 May 2100 at 13:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 23 May 2100 at 17:25 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
