Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon is entering ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1896".

Strawberry Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2061 after 14 days on 3 June 2061 at 06:09.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 26 May 2061 at 04:12
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 3 June 2061 at 06:09

  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 17 June 2061 at 18:03

Spring tide

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

New lunation 759 / 1712

At 11:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 759 of Meeus index or 1712 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.29 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2061. It is 7 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 25 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358.7°

The true anomaly is ∠358.7°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠13.9°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 12:47. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 6 May 2061 at 02:42 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 2 June 2061 at 04:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 187 km

This perigee Moon is 357 187 km (221 946 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 321 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 169 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 16 May 2061 at 19:55 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 May 2061 at 16:23 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 8 May 2061 at 17:15 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.372°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.328° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 May 2061 at 17:45 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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