Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 13 May 2086 at 01:41.

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 ∠13° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1897"

Lunar disc appears visually 0% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1897" and ∠1898".

Flower Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2086 after 14 days on 28 May 2086 at 12:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 20 May 2086 at 11:19
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 28 May 2086 at 12:35
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 4 June 2086 at 15:51
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 11 June 2086 at 11:12

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 1068 / 2021

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1068 of Meeus index or 2021 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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°

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

Moon after perigee

3 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 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 May 2086 at 15:25 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 377 777 km

The Moon is 377 777 km (234 740 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 729 km (251 487 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 12:33 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 28 May 2086 at 23:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon at northern standstill

At 20:32 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.466°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.458° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 29 May 2086 at 07:36.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 28 May 2086 at 12:35 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.
