Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 13 May 2067 at 07:20.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1784"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1897".

Flower Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2067 after 12 days on 28 May 2067 at 18:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 21 May 2067 at 08:29
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 28 May 2067 at 18:42
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 4 June 2067 at 10:38
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 11 June 2067 at 20:41

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 833 / 1786

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 833 of Meeus index or 1786 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.56 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 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 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠98.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠98.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠132.6°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 4 May 2067 at 04:17 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 May 2067 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 401 807 km

The Moon is 401 807 km (249 671 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 564 km (251 384 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 15 May 2067 at 12:44 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2067 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 15 May 2067 at 07:53 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.108°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.107° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 May 2067 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 28 May 2067 at 18:42 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.
