Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 11 June 2084 at 14:03.

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 ∠1963"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2084 after 1 day on 18 June 2084 at 10:00.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 18 June 2084 at 10:00
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 25 June 2084 at 02:15
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 3 July 2084 at 01:38
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 11 July 2084 at 01:06

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 1044 / 1997

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 1044 of Meeus index or 1997 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1044 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1045 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠157°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠157°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.4°. 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

11 days after point of apogee on 5 June 2084 at 20:10 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2084 at 20:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 171 km

Moon is 365 171 km (226 907 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 416 km (222 088 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 6 June 2084 at 12:27 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 19 June 2084 at 20:57 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 21:43 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.635°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.643° in its northern standstill point on 1 July 2084 at 04:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 18 June 2084 at 10:00 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
