Strawberry Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2095 after 2 days on 17 June 2095 at 22:05.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Lunation 1180 / 2133

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 1180 of Meeus index or 2133 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 1180 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 1181 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠47.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.3°. 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

4 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2095 at 06:34 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2095 at 17:27 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 607 km

Moon is 397 607 km (247 062 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 538 km (229 620 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 2 June 2095 at 21:43 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 June 2095 at 07:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 4 June 2095 at 12:12 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.917°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.916° in the next southern standstill on 18 June 2095 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 17 June 2095 at 22:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
