Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

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 895 / 1848

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 895 of Meeus index or 1848 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠285°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠285°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠313.1°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 12:42. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 23 May 2072 at 23:46 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next perigee on 19 June 2072 at 10:24 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 404 216 km

This apogee Moon is 404 216 km (251 168 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 192 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 493 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 25 May 2072 at 15:57 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 June 2072 at 10:43 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 2 June 2072 at 16:38 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.669°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.692° at the point of next northern standstill on 17 June 2072 at 00:01 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 16 June 2072 at 09:57 in ♊ Gemini 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.
