Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 24 April 2100 at 09:43.

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 passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1908"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1908" and ∠1905".

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 1240 / 2193

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 1240 of Meeus index or 2193 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.69 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 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 3 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠176.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠200.1°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 24 April 2100 at 02:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 May 2100 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 375 603 km

The Moon is 375 603 km (233 389 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 376 km (252 510 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 21 April 2100 at 05:33 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 May 2100 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 00:08 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.374°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.277° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 12 May 2100 at 13:36.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 9 May 2100 at 08:54 in ♉ Taurus 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.
