Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1772"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2057 after 12 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

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 710 / 1663

The Moon is 2 days 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 3 June 2057 at 02:13 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 464 km

The Moon is 404 464 km (251 322 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 134 km (221 913 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 02:51 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 17 June 2057 at 13:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 02:51 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

PreviousNext

Moon at northern standstill

At 20:49 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠23.700°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-23.700° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 18 June 2057 at 03:11.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 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.
