Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 7 May 2090 at 00:38.

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 passing about ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1900".

Flower Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2090 after 4 days on 13 May 2090 at 19:01.

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 1117 / 2070

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1117 of Meeus index or 2070 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 35 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠246°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠246°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠280.8°.

Moon before apogee

15 days after point of apogee on 24 April 2090 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 May 2090 at 05:31 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 748 km

The Moon is 363 748 km (226 023 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 931 km (228 000 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 23:10 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 23:10 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 3 May 2090 at 15:57 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.290°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.355° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 May 2090 at 12:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 13 May 2090 at 19:01 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
