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 ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2056 after 12 days on 27 June 2056 at 09:47.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 20 June 2056 at 18:48
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 27 June 2056 at 09:47
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 4 July 2056 at 18:55

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 698 / 1651

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 698 of Meeus index or 1651 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.55 days

Length of current 698 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes longer than next lunation 699 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 32 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 31 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠222.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.1°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 9 June 2056 at 08:50 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2056 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 109 km

Moon is 395 109 km (245 509 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 147 km (225 649 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 1 June 2056 at 02:08 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 June 2056 at 14:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 20:08 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.004°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.003° in its southern standstill point on 27 June 2056 at 19:17 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 27 June 2056 at 09:47 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
