Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 22 May 2058 at 10:23.

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 ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1784"

Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1894".

Strawberry Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2058 after 13 days on 6 June 2058 at 19:15.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 30 May 2058 at 13:33
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 6 June 2058 at 19:15
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 13 June 2058 at 09:50
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 21 June 2058 at 00:35

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 722 / 1675

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 722 of Meeus index or 1675 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 722 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 723 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠118.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠118.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠148.7°. 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 before apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 11 May 2058 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 May 2058 at 13:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 401 797 km

Moon is 401 797 km (249 665 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 059 km (251 692 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 23 May 2058 at 12:18 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 June 2058 at 17:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 12 May 2058 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.271°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.300° in the next northern standstill on 25 May 2058 at 15:27 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 6 June 2058 at 19:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
