Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1898".

Flower Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2086 after 15 days on 28 May 2086 at 12:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 20 May 2086 at 11:19

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1068 / 2021

At 01:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1068 of Meeus index or 2021 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 31 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 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 13 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.1°

The true anomaly is ∠37.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠62.5°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 10 May 2086 at 18:33 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 22 May 2086 at 15:25 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 373 248 km

The Moon is 373 248 km (231 926 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 729 km (251 487 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 1 May 2086 at 17:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 14 May 2086 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 2 May 2086 at 01:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.482°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠22.466° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 May 2086 at 20:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
