Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2061 after 3 days on 2 July 2061 at 20:52.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 2 July 2061 at 20:52
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 10 July 2061 at 10:23

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 760 / 1713

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 760 of Meeus index or 1713 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 760 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 761 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠13.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠13.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.2°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:19, this is 12 days after last perigee on 16 June 2061 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2061 at 03:23 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 405 739 km

This apogee Moon is 405 739 km (252 115 mi) away from Earth. It is 331 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 970 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 25 June 2061 at 18:12 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 July 2061 at 03:50 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 18 June 2061 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.260°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.248° in the next southern standstill on 2 July 2061 at 03:48 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 2 July 2061 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
