Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 3 June 2038 at 00:24.

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 ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1845"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1891".

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2038 after 11 days on 17 June 2038 at 02:30.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 10 June 2038 at 11:11
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 17 June 2038 at 02:30

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 475 / 1428

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 475 of Meeus index or 1428 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.55 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours 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 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠226°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠226°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠259.5°.

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 29 May 2038 at 20:16 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 388 423 km

The Moon is 388 423 km (241 355 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 752 km (226 025 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 06:06 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 18 June 2038 at 02:42 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 06:06 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

PreviousNext

Moon at northern standstill

At 09:24 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠23.031°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-23.039° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 18 June 2038 at 05:58.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 17 June 2038 at 02:30 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.
