Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 June 2057 at 08:11.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2057 after 13 days on 17 June 2057 at 02:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 10 June 2057 at 09:30
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 17 June 2057 at 02:18
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 23 June 2057 at 21:08
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 1 July 2057 at 23:47

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 710 / 1663

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 710 of Meeus index or 1663 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 710 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 36 minutes. It is 51 minutes longer than next lunation 711 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 11 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠173.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠196.2°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 02:13, this is 14 days after last perigee on 19 May 2057 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 459 km

This apogee Moon is 406 459 km (252 562 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2057. It is 1 051 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 250 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 21 May 2057 at 03:05 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 4 June 2057 at 02:51 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 21 May 2057 at 16:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.658°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.700° in the next northern standstill on 4 June 2057 at 20:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 17 June 2057 at 02:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
