Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 23 May 2064 at 18:15.

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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♏ Scorpio later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1964"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1893".

Flower Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2064 after 2 days on 30 May 2064 at 10:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 30 May 2064 at 10:36
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 6 June 2064 at 23:23
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 14 June 2064 at 22:20
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 21 June 2064 at 23:13

Neap tide

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 796 / 1749

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 796 of Meeus index or 1749 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 26 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 18 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 51 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠235.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠235.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠269.7°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 12:05. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 8 June 2064 at 09:54 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 280 km

This perigee Moon is 365 280 km (226 974 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 772 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 076 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 22 May 2064 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 June 2064 at 13:10 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 18 May 2064 at 13:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.360°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.330° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 May 2064 at 10:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 30 May 2064 at 10:36 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
