Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 4 June 2082 at 02:01
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 10 June 2082 at 17:55

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 1019 / 1972

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1019 of Meeus index or 1972 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 1019 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 29 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes longer than next lunation 1020 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠231.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠231.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠265.3°. 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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 23 May 2082 at 04:39 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2082 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 380 349 km

Moon is 380 349 km (236 338 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 650 km (226 583 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 19 May 2082 at 18:38 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 June 2082 at 02:08 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 29 May 2082 at 04:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.839°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.828° in the next southern standstill on 11 June 2082 at 02:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 10 June 2082 at 17:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
