Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 3 April 2093 at 23:46.

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 is entering ♌ Leo

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1777"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1917".

Pink Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2093 after 6 days on 11 April 2093 at 16:35.

Synodic month length 29.54 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠73.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠73.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠109.2°.

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 3 April 2093 at 11:21 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 15 April 2093 at 13:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 380 km

The Moon is 403 380 km (250 649 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 662 km (228 455 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 10:03 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 18 April 2093 at 13:39 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 10:03 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

PreviousNext

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 3 April 2093 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.174°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.301° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 April 2093 at 04:44 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 11 April 2093 at 16:35 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.
