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 ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1962"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1900".

Flower Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2090 after 3 days on 13 May 2090 at 19:01.

Lunation 1117 / 2070

The Moon is 11 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.

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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 05:31. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 24 April 2090 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. 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 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 366 931 km

This perigee Moon is 366 931 km (228 000 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 423 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 425 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 9 May 2090 at 23:10 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

6 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 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.355° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 May 2090 at 12:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 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.
