Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1898"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1898" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2062 after 7 days on 21 June 2062 at 21:43.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 21 June 2062 at 21:43
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 29 June 2062 at 23:54

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 772 / 1725

The Moon is 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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 after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 8 June 2062 at 10:43 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 June 2062 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 377 635 km

Moon is 377 635 km (234 652 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 285 km (252 454 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 09:08 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 28 June 2062 at 23:25 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 8 June 2062 at 07:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.432°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.402° in the next southern standstill on 21 June 2062 at 19:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 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.
