Moon phase and lunation details

5 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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1962"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1888".

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

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 809 / 1762

The Moon is 13 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 16 June 2065 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2065 at 22:35 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 416 km

Moon is 365 416 km (227 059 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 316 km (251 852 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 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 2 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

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 22:40 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.172°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.180° in its northern standstill point on 1 July 2065 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini.

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.
