Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1936"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1936" and ∠1888".

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 364 / 1317

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 364 of Meeus index or 1317 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.5 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 56 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 26 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠244.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠244.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠279.1°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 370 316 km

The Moon is 370 316 km (230 104 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 596 km (227 792 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2029 at 03:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 11 June 2029 at 22:05 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.392°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.401° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 June 2029 at 23:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 26 June 2029 at 03:22 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
