Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 22 June 2030 at 17:19.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2030 after 16 days on 15 July 2030 at 02:12.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 30 June 2030 at 21:34
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 8 July 2030 at 11:02
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 15 July 2030 at 02:12
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 22 July 2030 at 08:07

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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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

1 day after point of apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 July 2030 at 05:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 334 km

The Moon is 405 334 km (251 863 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 792 km (224 807 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 23:50 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 12 July 2030 at 14:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

13 days since the previous standstill on 15 June 2030 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.735°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠22.734° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 June 2030 at 02:45 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 30 June 2030 at 21:34 in ♋ Cancer 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.
