Moon* ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2026 after 15 days on 29 June 2026 at 23:57.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 20:01 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 326 of Meeus index or 1279 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 53 minutes is the length of new lunation 326. It is 4 minutes longer than next lunation 327 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠347.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 23:18, this is 13 days after last apogee on 1 June 2026 at 04:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2026 at 07:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 196 km (221 951 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 312 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 160 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 7 June 2026 at 06:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2026 at 17:57 in ♌ Leo.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 1 June 2026 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.988°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.989° in the next northern standstill on 15 June 2026 at 05:29 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
