Planetary positions on April 22, 1924

An observer located in New York City on Tuesday April 22, 1924, would see:



The sun rising at 05:06 am and setting at 06:43 pm.


The moon, being 78% full, rising at 09:20 pm and setting at 08:35 am. The previous full moon was on Apr 19, 1924 while the next full moon would come on May 18, 1924.

The same observer would also see the other Solar System Planets as follows:



Mercury rising at 05:41 am and setting at 08:18 pm with a 18% of surface illuminated. Mercury would be orbiting the Sun at a distance of 0.39 astronomical units (AU) and would be found at a distance of 0.71 astronomical units (AU) from Earth. Given the planet elongation, the observer would see Mercury at an angle of 17° 32' 59.0" with the Sun. The brightness would be 1.41 this day, as measured by the planet magnitude.
