Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♉ Taurus later.

Lunation 475 / 1428

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 475 of Meeus index or 1428 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.55 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠226°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠226°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠259.5°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 12:55. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 11 July 2038 at 19:32 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 404 680 km

This apogee Moon is 404 680 km (251 456 mi) away from Earth. It is 728 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 029 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 18 June 2038 at 02:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 July 2038 at 12:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 18 June 2038 at 05:58 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.039°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.041° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 July 2038 at 16:20 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 2 July 2038 at 13:32 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
