Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 14 June 2043 at 10:19.

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 ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1778"

Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2043 after 1 day on 22 June 2043 at 14:20.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 22 June 2043 at 14:20
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 30 June 2043 at 02:53
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 6 July 2043 at 17:51
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 14 July 2043 at 01:47

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 537 / 1490

The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 537 of Meeus index or 1490 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 537 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 538 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠15.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 18 June 2043 at 23:28 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2043 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 197 km

Moon is 403 197 km (250 535 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 588 km (225 302 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 15 June 2043 at 09:52 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 June 2043 at 18:46 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 8 June 2043 at 09:54 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.431°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.403° in the next southern standstill on 22 June 2043 at 14:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 22 June 2043 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
