Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 19 June 2029 at 09:54.

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 ♏ Scorpio

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1955"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2029 after 2 days on 26 June 2029 at 03:22.

Lunation 364 / 1317

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 366 675 km

The Moon is 366 675 km (227 841 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 317 km (251 231 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2029 at 03:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

24 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 before southern standstill

11 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 day 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 2 days

In 2 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.
