Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 23 May 2007 at 21:03.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♎ Libra

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1774"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1894".

Strawberry Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2007 after 5 days on 1 June 2007 at 01:04.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 1 June 2007 at 01:04
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 8 June 2007 at 11:43
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 15 June 2007 at 03:13
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 22 June 2007 at 13:15

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.

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 91 of Meeus index or 1044 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2007. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠19.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠19.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠38.7°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 15 May 2007 at 15:10 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 May 2007 at 22:01 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 070 km

The Moon is 404 070 km (251 077 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 458 km (251 940 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 24 May 2007 at 17:16 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 June 2007 at 00:35 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 18 May 2007 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.287°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.219° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 June 2007 at 09:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 1 June 2007 at 01:04 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
