Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2029 after 1 day on 26 June 2029 at 03:22.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Lunation 364 / 1317

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 364 of Meeus index or 1317 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 364 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes longer than next lunation 365 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠244.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠279.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 369 859 km

Moon is 369 859 km (229 820 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 317 km (251 231 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2029 at 03:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon in southern standstill

At 23:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.401°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.399° in its northern standstill point on 9 July 2029 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 26 June 2029 at 03:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
