Want to know the position of the Moon today? Or are you looking for some resources for the Moon tonight. The Moon is moving quickly around the Earth. This means that the time and location that the Moon will rise or set depends on your location on Earth. The phase of the Moon is always seen the same from everyone on Earth, but that changes from day to day.

To see what the Moon is doing today, you’ll want to consult our calendars of Moon phases. Just click the link for the year that you’re interested in, and then scroll down to the month.

If you’re looking for something more specific, like what the Moon looks like right now, check out this handy calculator from StarDate Online.

Do you want to find out the moonrise and moonset times from your location? Here’s a great tool, which calculates the moonrise/moonset times for the entire year based on your location.

You can listen to a very interesting podcast about the formation of the Moon from Astronomy Cast, Episode 17: Where Did the Moon Come From?
