Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 10 June 2021 at 10:53.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1839"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1839" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2021 after 10 days on 24 June 2021 at 18:40.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 18 June 2021 at 03:54
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 24 June 2021 at 18:40
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 1 July 2021 at 21:11
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 10 July 2021 at 01:17

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 265 / 1218

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 265 of Meeus index or 1218 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.6 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 24 minutes. It is 1 hour and 50 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠202.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠202.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠230.1°.

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 8 June 2021 at 02:27 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 June 2021 at 09:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 389 746 km

The Moon is 389 746 km (242 177 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 960 km (223 669 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 9 June 2021 at 16:42 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 June 2021 at 06:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 12 June 2021 at 04:11 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.640°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.631° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 June 2021 at 05:49 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 24 June 2021 at 18:40 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.
