Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 8 April 2058 at 22:55.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1939"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1939" and ∠1914".

Pink Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2058 after 25 days on 8 May 2058 at 10:12.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Capricorn ♑ on 15 April 2058 at 22:27
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 22 April 2058 at 21:29
  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 30 April 2058 at 20:18

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 720 / 1673

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 720 of Meeus index or 1673 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠50.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠50.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠82.2°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 1 April 2058 at 23:36 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 15 April 2058 at 18:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 369 576 km

The Moon is 369 576 km (229 644 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 945 km (229 873 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after ascending node on 30 March 2058 at 00:38 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 April 2058 at 02:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 31 March 2058 at 23:15 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.018°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.135° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 April 2058 at 20:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 22 April 2058 at 21:29 in ♈ Aries 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.
