Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1893".

Strawberry Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2093 after 11 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

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 1155 / 2108

The Moon is 3 days 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 21:26, this is 15 days after last perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 June 2093 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 405 700 km

This apogee Moon is 405 700 km (252 090 mi) away from Earth. It is 292 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 009 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 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 day, 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

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 08:03 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠21.600°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-21.625° in its southern standstill point on 10 June 2093 at 21:56 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 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.
