Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 4 June 2052 at 06:49.

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 ∠11° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1771"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2052 after 1 day on 12 June 2052 at 10:27.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 12 June 2052 at 10:27
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 20 June 2052 at 03:10
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 26 June 2052 at 17:50
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 3 July 2052 at 20:59

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 648 / 1601

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 648 of Meeus index or 1601 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 648 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2052. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 649 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.2°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 10 June 2052 at 00:46 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 25 June 2052 at 08:22 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 835 km

Moon is 404 835 km (251 553 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 167 km (223 797 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 6 June 2052 at 13:15 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2052 at 22:46 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 29 May 2052 at 16:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.475°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.514° in the next southern standstill on 12 June 2052 at 20:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 12 June 2052 at 10:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
