Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 5 May 2065 at 11:30.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1843"

Lunar disc appears visually 3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1843" and ∠1899".

Flower Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2065 after 8 days on 20 May 2065 at 02:05.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 13 May 2065 at 10:52
  • Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ on 20 May 2065 at 02:05

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 808 / 1761

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 808 of Meeus index or 1761 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 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 2 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 13 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠206.9°.

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 5 May 2065 at 03:19 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 May 2065 at 12:57 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 388 893 km

The Moon is 388 893 km (241 647 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 407 km (222 082 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 14:42 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 24 May 2065 at 02:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 8 May 2065 at 11:49 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.222°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.190° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 May 2065 at 12:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 20 May 2065 at 02:05 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.
