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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1905".

Flower Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2052 after 14 days on 13 May 2052 at 19:00.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 5 May 2052 at 19:05

Spring tide

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 647 / 1600

At 03:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 647 of Meeus index or 1600 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.31 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 29 minutes. It is 29 minutes longer 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠352.1°

The true anomaly is ∠352.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠7.2°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 14:35. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 16 April 2052 at 17:03 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 13 May 2052 at 20:41 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 547 km

This perigee Moon is 357 547 km (222 169 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 961 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 809 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 27 April 2052 at 10:56 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 10 May 2052 at 10:36 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 19 April 2052 at 06:22 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.346°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.384° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 May 2052 at 05:36 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.
