Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1851"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1892".

Strawberry Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2068 after 14 days on 15 June 2068 at 17:00.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 7 June 2068 at 22:20
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 15 June 2068 at 17:00
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 22 June 2068 at 12:25
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 29 June 2068 at 15:11

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 846 / 1799

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 846 of Meeus index or 1799 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 846 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 847 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠66°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠66°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠99.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 26 May 2068 at 09:16 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 June 2068 at 22:05 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 387 231 km

Moon is 387 231 km (240 614 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 221 km (251 171 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 30 May 2068 at 13:21 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 June 2068 at 23:06 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 31 May 2068 at 17:47 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.451°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.453° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2068 at 04:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 15 June 2068 at 17:00 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
