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 in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2065 after 1 day on 18 June 2065 at 09:28.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 18 June 2065 at 09:28
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 25 June 2065 at 14:08
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 3 July 2065 at 17:16
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 11 July 2065 at 01:16

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 809 / 1762

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 809 of Meeus index or 1762 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 809 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 810 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠206.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.9°. 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 20:01, this is 15 days after last apogee on 1 June 2065 at 09:08 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2065 at 22:35 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 360 552 km

This perigee Moon is 360 552 km (224 037 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 956 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 804 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 7 June 2065 at 16:41 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 June 2065 at 10:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 4 June 2065 at 16:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.155°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.172° in the next southern standstill on 17 June 2065 at 22:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 18 June 2065 at 09:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
