Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 3 June 2025 at 03:41.

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 in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1778"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2025 after 5 days on 11 June 2025 at 07:44.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 11 June 2025 at 07:44

Synodic month length 29.31 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 29 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2025. It is 1 hour and 11 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 5 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠17.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠17.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠36.2°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 26 May 2025 at 01:37 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 7 June 2025 at 10:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 064 km

The Moon is 403 064 km (250 452 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 553 km (251 999 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 4 June 2025 at 01:33 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 18 June 2025 at 09:41 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 28 May 2025 at 16:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.442°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.394° at the point of next southern standstill on 11 June 2025 at 23:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 11 June 2025 at 07:44 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.
