Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1780"

Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2057 after 11 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

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 710 / 1663

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 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 3 June 2057 at 02:13 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 628 km

Moon is 402 628 km (250 181 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 134 km (221 913 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 4 June 2057 at 02:51 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 June 2057 at 13:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 4 June 2057 at 20:49 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.700°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.700° in the next southern standstill on 18 June 2057 at 03:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 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.
