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 ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

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 585 / 1538

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 585 of Meeus index or 1538 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.66 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 48 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes 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 3 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 59 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠185.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠185.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠210.1°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 9 May 2047 at 02:43 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 21 May 2047 at 20:02 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 376 872 km

The Moon is 376 872 km (234 177 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 202 km (252 402 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 18:17 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 28 May 2047 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer.

New draconic month

At 18:17 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 11 May 2047 at 19:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.371°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.322° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 May 2047 at 04:23 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 24 May 2047 at 20:27 in ♉ Taurus 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.
