Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 7 April 2090 at 17:56.

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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1913".

Pink Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2090 after 1 day on 14 April 2090 at 09:22.

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 1116 / 2069

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1116 of Meeus index or 2069 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠214.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠214.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠246°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 12:39. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 27 March 2090 at 18:35 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 24 April 2090 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 361 767 km

This perigee Moon is 361 767 km (224 792 mi) away from Earth. It is 741 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 589 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 16:39 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 26 April 2090 at 12:13 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 16:39 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 6 April 2090 at 10:07 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.167°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.213° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 April 2090 at 02:47 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 14 April 2090 at 09:22 in ♎ Libra 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.
