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 is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1821"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1821" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2086 after 2 days on 27 June 2086 at 00:04.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 27 June 2086 at 00:04
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 3 July 2086 at 20:10

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 1069 / 2022

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1069 of Meeus index or 2022 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 1069 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1070 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠62.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠62.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠95.5°. 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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2086 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra. 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 2 July 2086 at 04:43 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 393 696 km

Moon is 393 696 km (244 631 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 036 km (229 308 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 10 June 2086 at 21:57 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 June 2086 at 07:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2086 at 06:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.467°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.460° in the next southern standstill on 25 June 2086 at 15:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 27 June 2086 at 00:04 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
