Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 30 April 2058 at 20:18.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1837"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1902".

Flower Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2058 after 2 days on 8 May 2058 at 10:12.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ on 8 May 2058 at 10:12
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 15 May 2058 at 03:58

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 721 / 1674

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 721 of Meeus index or 1674 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.54 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 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 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠82.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠82.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠118.2°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 29 April 2058 at 19:18 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 11 May 2058 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 390 177 km

The Moon is 390 177 km (242 445 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 328 km (227 626 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 26 April 2058 at 05:25 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 May 2058 at 07:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

9 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

7 days since the previous standstill on 28 April 2058 at 07:29 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.222°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.271° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 May 2058 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 8 May 2058 at 10:12 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
