Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 20 April 2086 at 18:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1907".

Pink Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2086 after 4 days on 28 April 2086 at 22:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ on 28 April 2086 at 22:35
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 6 May 2086 at 10:26
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 13 May 2086 at 01:41
  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 20 May 2086 at 11:19

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 1067 / 2020

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1067 of Meeus index or 2020 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2086. It is 43 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠18.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠37.1°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 22:37. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 12 April 2086 at 15:10 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next perigee on 10 May 2086 at 18:33 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 405 704 km

This apogee Moon is 405 704 km (252 093 mi) away from Earth. It is 296 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 005 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 17 April 2086 at 03:54 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 May 2086 at 17:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

19 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

7 days since the previous standstill on 17 April 2086 at 10:50 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.550°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.482° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 May 2086 at 01:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 28 April 2086 at 22:35 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.
