Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

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 314 / 1267

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 314 of Meeus index or 1267 from Brown series.

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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 7 June 2025 at 10:42 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 June 2025 at 04:43 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 395 440 km

The Moon is 395 440 km (245 715 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 178 km (225 668 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 4 June 2025 at 01:33 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 June 2025 at 09:41 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

21 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 after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 11 June 2025 at 23:54 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.394°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.402° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 June 2025 at 01:43 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 25 June 2025 at 10:31 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
