Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 3 June 2061 at 06:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1777"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2061 after 28 days on 2 July 2061 at 20:52.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 11 June 2061 at 02:42
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 17 June 2061 at 18:03
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 24 June 2061 at 16:54
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 2 July 2061 at 20:52

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 759 / 1712

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is 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°

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

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 2 June 2061 at 04:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 2061 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 349 km

The Moon is 403 349 km (250 629 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 371 km (222 681 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 29 May 2061 at 16:23 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 June 2061 at 01:57 in ♈ Aries.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon at southern standstill

At 22:36 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.272°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.260° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 18 June 2061 at 03:42.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 17 June 2061 at 18:03 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
