Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 11 June 2061 at 02:42.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2061 after 16 days on 2 July 2061 at 20:52.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 17 June 2061 at 18:03
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 24 June 2061 at 16:54

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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 22:16. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 2 June 2061 at 04:48 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 29 June 2061 at 12:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 371 km

This perigee Moon is 358 371 km (222 681 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 137 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 985 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 13 June 2061 at 01:57 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 25 June 2061 at 18:12 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

3 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

11 days since the previous standstill on 4 June 2061 at 22:36 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.272°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠28.260° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 June 2061 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day 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.
