Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1916".

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 807 / 1760

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 807 of Meeus index or 1760 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.69 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 29 minutes. It is 55 minutes 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 18 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠159.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠159.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠183°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 00:30. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 23 March 2065 at 16:36 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 21 April 2065 at 02:34 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 406 389 km

This apogee Moon is 406 389 km (252 518 mi) away from Earth. It is 981 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 320 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 30 March 2065 at 22:27 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 April 2065 at 13:32 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 27 March 2065 at 18:51 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.548°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.411° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 April 2065 at 06:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 20 April 2065 at 18:36 in ♎ Libra 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.
