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 in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1888".

At 17:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 488 of Meeus index or 1441 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.61 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 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 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠199.2°

The true anomaly is ∠199.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠226.3°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 348 km

The Moon is 404 348 km (251 250 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 517 km (223 394 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 00:51 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 4 July 2039 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

New draconic month

At 00:51 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

PreviousNext

Moon before northern standstill

13 days since the previous standstill on 8 June 2039 at 11:24 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.703°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠24.701° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 June 2039 at 16:02 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.
