Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1888".

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 26 June 2048 at 02:08
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 2 July 2048 at 23:58
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 11 July 2048 at 04:04

Spring tide

There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.

Lunation 599 / 1552

The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 599 of Meeus index or 1552 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.63 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 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 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠186.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠186.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠210.3°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 09:51. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 10 June 2048 at 20:20 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 8 July 2048 at 03:10 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 914 km

This perigee Moon is 357 914 km (222 397 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 594 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 442 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 14:10 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 9 July 2048 at 07:58 in ♊ Gemini.

New draconic month

At 14:10 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 24 June 2048 at 23:22 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.752°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.746° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 July 2048 at 12:46 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
