Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 25 May 2093 at 06:07.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1777"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1894".

Strawberry Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2093 after 13 days on 9 June 2093 at 10:09.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 2 June 2093 at 10:39
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 9 June 2093 at 10:09
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 16 June 2093 at 01:19
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 23 June 2093 at 21:04

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 1155 / 2108

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1155 of Meeus index or 2108 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 1155 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 1156 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠142°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.5°. 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 before apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 424 km

Moon is 403 424 km (250 676 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 700 km (252 090 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 15 May 2093 at 15:06 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 14 May 2093 at 12:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.516°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.600° in the next northern standstill on 28 May 2093 at 08:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 9 June 2093 at 10:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
