Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 4 June 2046 at 15:22.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1875"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1875" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2046 after 13 days on 18 June 2046 at 13:10.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 11 June 2046 at 15:27
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 18 June 2046 at 13:10
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 26 June 2046 at 10:40
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 4 July 2046 at 01:39

Moderate tide

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 574 / 1527

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 574 of Meeus index or 1527 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 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 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠274°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠274°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠304.9°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2046 at 21:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 June 2046 at 03:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 382 242 km

The Moon is 382 242 km (237 514 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 663 km (229 698 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 25 May 2046 at 04:58 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 June 2046 at 09:42 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon at northern standstill

At 05:17 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.677°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.680° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 18 June 2046 at 02:43.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 18 June 2046 at 13:10 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.
