Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 11 May 2093 at 02:17.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1897".

Flower Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2093 after 24 days on 9 June 2093 at 10:09.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 17 May 2093 at 17:47

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 1154 / 2107

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1154 of Meeus index or 2107 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes 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 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠109.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠109.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠142°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 742 km

The Moon is 363 742 km (226 019 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 700 km (252 090 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 15:06 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 14 May 2093 at 12:06 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.516°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.600° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 May 2093 at 08:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 25 May 2093 at 06:07 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.
