Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1895".

Strawberry Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2039 after 14 days on 6 June 2039 at 18:48.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 31 May 2039 at 02:24
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 6 June 2039 at 18:48

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 487 / 1440

At 01:38 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 487 of Meeus index or 1440 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 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 59 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 4 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.2°

The true anomaly is ∠176.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠199.2°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 12:06. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 9 May 2039 at 01:48 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 6 June 2039 at 12:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 489 km

This apogee Moon is 406 489 km (252 581 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2039. It is 1 081 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 220 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 10 May 2039 at 18:11 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 May 2039 at 18:40 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 12 May 2039 at 01:13 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.653°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.699° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 May 2039 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer.

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.
