Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1887".

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2079 after 15 days on 14 July 2079 at 03:24.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 29 June 2079 at 01:31

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 982 / 1935

At 18:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 982 of Meeus index or 1935 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.28 days

29 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes is the length of new lunation 982. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2079. It is 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 983 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠356.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠356.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠12°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 08:30, this is 14 days after last apogee on 13 June 2079 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 11 July 2079 at 01:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 090 km

This perigee Moon is 358 090 km (222 507 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 418 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 266 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 24 June 2079 at 10:51 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 July 2079 at 02:33 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 21:27 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.935°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.936° in its southern standstill point on 12 July 2079 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
