Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

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 856 / 1809

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 856 of Meeus index or 1809 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.36 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 45 minutes. It is 38 minutes longer 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠349.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠349.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠4.9°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 23 March 2069 at 15:45 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 April 2069 at 02:44 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 373 455 km

The Moon is 373 455 km (232 054 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 308 km (252 468 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 25 March 2069 at 18:54 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 April 2069 at 21:44 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 06:45 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠20.006°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-19.933° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 11 April 2069 at 22:06.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 6 April 2069 at 16:13 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.
