Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 8 June 2026 at 10:00.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2026 after 16 days on 29 June 2026 at 23:57.

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 326 / 1279

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 326 of Meeus index or 1279 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.29 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 53 minutes. It is 4 minutes longer 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 51 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 18 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠347.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠347.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠2.5°.

Moon before apogee

12 days after point of apogee on 1 June 2026 at 04:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 June 2026 at 23:18 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 364 424 km

The Moon is 364 424 km (226 443 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 196 km (221 951 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after ascending node on 7 June 2026 at 06:19 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2026 at 17:57 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 1 June 2026 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.988°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠27.989° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 June 2026 at 05:29 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 15 June 2026 at 02:54 in ♊ Gemini 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.
