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 ∠20° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1892".

Strawberry Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2098 after 11 days on 13 June 2098 at 20:25.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 6 June 2098 at 09:45
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 13 June 2098 at 20:25
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 21 June 2098 at 23:50

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 1217 / 2170

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 1217 of Meeus index or 2170 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 1217 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes. It is 58 minutes longer than next lunation 1218 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠320.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.4°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:57, this is 11 days after last apogee on 21 May 2098 at 09:03 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 June 2098 at 01:07 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 988 km

This perigee Moon is 363 988 km (226 172 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 480 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 368 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 27 May 2098 at 09:11 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 June 2098 at 01:58 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 1 June 2098 at 09:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.197°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.153° in the next southern standstill on 14 June 2098 at 16:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 13 June 2098 at 20:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
