Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1832"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1832" and ∠1893".

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 4 June 2086 at 15:51

Spring tide

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

Lunation 1068 / 2021

The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is 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°

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

5 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 9 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 391 349 km

The Moon is 391 349 km (243 173 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 272 km (228 834 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 23:15 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 10 June 2086 at 21:57 in ♊ Gemini.

New draconic month

At 23:15 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before southern standstill

13 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

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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