Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 May 2097 at 18:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1898".

Flower Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2097 after 12 days on 26 May 2097 at 03:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 18 May 2097 at 09:14
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 26 May 2097 at 03:36
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 3 June 2097 at 06:11
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 10 June 2097 at 02:13

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 1204 / 2157

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1204 of Meeus index or 2157 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 34 minutes. It is 50 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 5 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠339.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠355.1°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 00:36. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 30 April 2097 at 19:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 28 May 2097 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 702 km

This perigee Moon is 359 702 km (223 508 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 806 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 654 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 11 May 2097 at 03:30 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 May 2097 at 05:04 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 1 May 2097 at 12:40 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.535°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠27.518° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 May 2097 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 26 May 2097 at 03:36 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.
