Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1890".

Strawberry Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2062 after 13 days on 21 June 2062 at 21:43.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 14 June 2062 at 01:53
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 21 June 2062 at 21:43
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 29 June 2062 at 23:54
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 6 July 2062 at 17:53

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 772 / 1725

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 772 of Meeus index or 1725 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 772 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 41 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2062. It is 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 773 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠343.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠343.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠358.8°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 10:43, this is 12 days after last apogee on 27 May 2062 at 00:01 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 23 June 2062 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 773 km

This perigee Moon is 358 773 km (222 931 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 735 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 583 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

6 days after its ascending node on 1 June 2062 at 21:30 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 June 2062 at 09:08 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 07:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.432°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.402° in its southern standstill point on 21 June 2062 at 19:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 21 June 2062 at 21:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
