Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2060 after 14 days on 14 June 2060 at 03:37.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 6 June 2060 at 00:44
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 14 June 2060 at 03:37
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 21 June 2060 at 08:44
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 28 June 2060 at 02:58

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 747 / 1700

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 747 of Meeus index or 1700 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.36 days

Length of current 747 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 748 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.1°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 27 May 2060 at 20:38 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 June 2060 at 19:26 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 372 367 km

Moon is 372 367 km (231 378 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 799 km (251 530 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 27 May 2060 at 15:43 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 June 2060 at 08:48 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 18 May 2060 at 20:56 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.700°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.668° in the next northern standstill on 31 May 2060 at 15:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 14 June 2060 at 03:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
