Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 14 June 2041 at 10:59.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1952"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2041 after 27 days on 13 July 2041 at 19:01.

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 512 / 1465

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 512 of Meeus index or 1465 from Brown series.

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 before apogee

10 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 June 2041 at 11:48 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 367 210 km

The Moon is 367 210 km (228 174 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 482 km (227 100 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 11 June 2041 at 14:42 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 June 2041 at 08:57 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

19 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 after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 15 June 2041 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.308°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.286° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 June 2041 at 10:46 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 28 June 2041 at 11:17 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.
