Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

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 leaving the last ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2098 after 12 days on 13 July 2098 at 10:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 5 July 2098 at 16:31
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 13 July 2098 at 10:35
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 21 July 2098 at 13:34
  • New Moon in Leo ♌ on 28 July 2098 at 08:51

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 1218 / 2171

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1218 of Meeus index or 2171 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 1218 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2098. It is 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 1219 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. 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 07:43, this is 12 days after last apogee on 18 June 2098 at 01:07 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 July 2098 at 11:43 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 588 km

This perigee Moon is 359 588 km (223 438 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 920 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 768 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

6 days after its ascending node on 23 June 2098 at 14:19 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 July 2098 at 02:56 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

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 28 June 2098 at 19:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.163°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.167° in the next southern standstill on 11 July 2098 at 22:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 13 July 2098 at 10:35 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
