Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♈ Aries

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

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1793" and ∠1913".

Pink Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2048 after 14 days on 28 April 2048 at 11:13.

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 597 / 1550

At 05:19 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 597 of Meeus index or 1550 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 38 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 9 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠135.6°

The true anomaly is ∠135.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠163°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 1 April 2048 at 10:10 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 April 2048 at 07:22 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 399 847 km

The Moon is 399 847 km (248 453 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 534 km (251 987 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 4 April 2048 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 April 2048 at 16:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 3 April 2048 at 18:56 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.977°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.861° at the point of next northern standstill on 17 April 2048 at 19:00 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
