Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

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 807 / 1760

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 807 of Meeus index or 1760 from Brown series.

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 before perigee

13 days after point of perigee on 21 April 2065 at 02:34 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 May 2065 at 03:19 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 405 266 km

The Moon is 405 266 km (251 821 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 674 km (252 696 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after ascending node on 26 April 2065 at 23:17 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 May 2065 at 14:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

7 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

10 days since the previous standstill on 24 April 2065 at 02:50 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.324°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.222° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 May 2065 at 11:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 5 May 2065 at 11:30 in ♉ Taurus 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.
