Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 6 June 2041 at 21:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1842"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2041 after 2 days on 14 June 2041 at 10:59.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 14 June 2041 at 10:59
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 21 June 2041 at 03:12

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 512 / 1465

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 512 of Meeus index or 1465 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 46 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠88.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠88.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠123.4°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 5 June 2041 at 13:34 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 June 2041 at 11:48 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 389 090 km

The Moon is 389 090 km (241 769 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 482 km (227 100 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♏ Scorpio at 14:42 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 24 June 2041 at 08:57 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 1 June 2041 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.334°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.308° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 June 2041 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 14 June 2041 at 10:59 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.
