Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1966"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1893".

Strawberry Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2036 after 11 days on 8 June 2036 at 21:02.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 1 June 2036 at 11:34
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 8 June 2036 at 21:02
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 17 June 2036 at 01:03
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 24 June 2036 at 03:09

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 450 / 1403

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 450 of Meeus index or 1403 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.33 days

Length of current 450 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 53 minutes. It is 46 minutes longer than next lunation 451 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠318.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠338.2°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:17, this is 11 days after last apogee on 16 May 2036 at 12:41 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 June 2036 at 05:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 390 km

This perigee Moon is 364 390 km (226 421 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 882 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 966 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 17 May 2036 at 18:30 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 May 2036 at 22:23 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 03:06 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.831°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.888° in its southern standstill point on 10 June 2036 at 13:44 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 8 June 2036 at 21:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
