Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 1 June 2030 at 06:21.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1801"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1801" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2030 after 11 days on 15 June 2030 at 18:41.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • 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
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 30 June 2030 at 21:34

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 376 / 1329

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 376 of Meeus index or 1329 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 2 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠189°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠189°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠213.7°.

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 31 May 2030 at 06:14 in ♉ Taurus. 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 14 June 2030 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 059 km

The Moon is 398 059 km (247 342 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 183 km (222 565 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 1 June 2030 at 17:30 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 June 2030 at 05:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

16 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

2 days since the previous standstill on 1 June 2030 at 20:22 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.730°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.735° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 June 2030 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 15 June 2030 at 18:41 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
