Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2057 after 26 days on 16 July 2057 at 09:28.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 23 June 2057 at 21:08

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 16 July 2057 at 09:28

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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 June 2057 at 05:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 367 810 km

Moon is 367 810 km (228 547 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 331 km (252 482 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 17 June 2057 at 13:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 1 July 2057 at 09:00 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 18 June 2057 at 03:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.700°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.700° in the next northern standstill on 2 July 2057 at 02:54 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 1 July 2057 at 23:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
