Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.

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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 404 778 km

The Moon is 404 778 km (251 517 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 767 km (229 763 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 16 May 2090 at 12:41 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.355°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.414° at the point of next northern standstill on 30 May 2090 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 29 May 2090 at 07:29 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
