Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1854"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1854" and ∠1898".

Flower Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2092 after 6 days on 21 May 2092 at 10:00.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1142 / 2095

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1142 of Meeus index or 2095 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 39 minutes. It is 46 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 55 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 8 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠167.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠167.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠190.3°.

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 7 May 2092 at 23:16 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 May 2092 at 11:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 685 km

The Moon is 386 685 km (240 275 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 854 km (221 739 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 03:08 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 26 May 2092 at 13:44 in ♒ Aquarius.

New draconic month

At 03:08 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 10 May 2092 at 22:54 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.946°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.010° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 May 2092 at 22:16 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 21 May 2092 at 10:00 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
