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.

Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2089 after 1 day on 23 June 2089 at 00:07.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 23 June 2089 at 00:07
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 1 July 2089 at 03:43

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 1106 / 2059

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 1106 of Meeus index or 2059 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 1106 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 3 minutes. It is 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1107 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠331.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. 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 apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2089 at 11:59 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2089 at 00:52 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 397 439 km

Moon is 397 439 km (246 957 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 892 km (252 210 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 16 June 2089 at 22:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 July 2089 at 11:25 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 9 June 2089 at 06:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.600°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.620° in the next southern standstill on 22 June 2089 at 12:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 23 June 2089 at 00:07 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
