Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 7 days on 23 May 2062 at 07:03.

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 in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1798"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1892".

Flower Moon before 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2062 after 22 days on 21 June 2062 at 21:43.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 31 May 2062 at 10:44
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 7 June 2062 at 11:12
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 14 June 2062 at 01:53
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 21 June 2062 at 21:43

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 771 / 1724

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 771 of Meeus index or 1724 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.33 days

Length of current 771 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 772 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠325.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠325.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.6°. 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

3 days after point of apogee on 27 May 2062 at 00:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2062 at 10:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 662 km

Moon is 398 662 km (247 717 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 773 km (222 931 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 18 May 2062 at 08:14 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 June 2062 at 21:30 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 25 May 2062 at 13:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.459°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.432° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2062 at 07:41 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 7 June 2062 at 11:12 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
