Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 June 2057 at 08:11.

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 ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2057 after 13 days on 17 June 2057 at 02:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 10 June 2057 at 09:30
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 17 June 2057 at 02:18
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 23 June 2057 at 21:08
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 1 July 2057 at 23:47

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 710 / 1663

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 710 of Meeus index or 1663 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 36 minutes. It is 51 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 52 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 11 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠173.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠173.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠196.2°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 02:13. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 19 May 2057 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 459 km

This apogee Moon is 406 459 km (252 562 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2057. It is 1 051 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 250 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

13 days after descending node on 21 May 2057 at 03:05 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 June 2057 at 02:51 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 21 May 2057 at 16:36 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.658°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠23.700° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 June 2057 at 20:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 17 June 2057 at 02:18 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.
