Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 20 May 2086 at 11:19.

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 ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1812"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1812" and ∠1893".

Flower Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2086 after 1 day on 28 May 2086 at 12:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • 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
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 19 June 2086 at 04:33

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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 22 May 2086 at 15:25 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 June 2086 at 01:37 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 576 km

The Moon is 395 576 km (245 800 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 272 km (228 834 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 14 May 2086 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 May 2086 at 23:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

25 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 before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 14 May 2086 at 20:32 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.466°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-22.458° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 May 2086 at 07:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day 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.
