Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1892".

Strawberry Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2030 after 15 days on 15 June 2030 at 18:41.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 1 June 2030 at 06:21
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 9 June 2030 at 03:36
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 15 June 2030 at 18:41
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 22 June 2030 at 17:19

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 375 / 1328

At 14:12 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 375 of Meeus index or 1328 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.67 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 9 minutes. It is 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 25 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 38 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠165.9°

The true anomaly is ∠165.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠189°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 06:14. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 17 May 2030 at 13:45 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 14 June 2030 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 469 km

This apogee Moon is 406 469 km (252 568 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2030. It is 1 061 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 240 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 18 May 2030 at 18:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 June 2030 at 17:30 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 18 May 2030 at 20:54 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.737°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠22.730° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 June 2030 at 20:22 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
