Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 20 June 2037 at 13:45.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1865"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1865" and ∠1887".

Strawberry Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 1 day on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 27 June 2037 at 15:20
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 5 July 2037 at 16:00
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 13 July 2037 at 02:32
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 19 July 2037 at 18:31

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 463 / 1416

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 463 of Meeus index or 1416 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.39 days

Length of current 463 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 464 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠292.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠292.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.7°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2037 at 19:50 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 384 324 km

Moon is 384 324 km (238 808 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 478 km (251 331 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 16 June 2037 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 June 2037 at 10:01 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 15 June 2037 at 01:37 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.359°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.369° in the next southern standstill on 28 June 2037 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 27 June 2037 at 15:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
