Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

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 ∠16° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1891".

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2049 after 12 days on 15 June 2049 at 19:26.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 8 June 2049 at 17:56
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 15 June 2049 at 19:26
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 22 June 2049 at 09:41
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 30 June 2049 at 04:50

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 611 / 1564

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 611 of Meeus index or 1564 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 611 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 50 minutes. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 612 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠136.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠136.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠162.9°. 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 before apogee

14 days after point of perigee on 19 May 2049 at 19:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 June 2049 at 14:39 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 200 km

Moon is 405 200 km (251 780 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 617 km (252 039 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 31 May 2049 at 11:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 1 June 2049 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.085°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.089° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2049 at 07:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 15 June 2049 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
