Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 21 June 2045 at 18:28
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 29 June 2045 at 07:16

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 562 / 1515

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 562 of Meeus index or 1515 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.31 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 24 minutes. It is 13 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 49 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠328°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠328°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠345.4°.

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 17 June 2045 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 July 2045 at 18:04 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 703 km

The Moon is 365 703 km (227 237 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 608 km (252 033 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 19 June 2045 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2045 at 02:35 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 15 June 2045 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.696°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.699° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 June 2045 at 04:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 29 June 2045 at 07:16 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
