Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 25 May 2070 at 01:37.

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1819"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1819" and ∠1892".

Flower Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2070 after 24 days on 23 June 2070 at 16:57.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 2 June 2070 at 01:26
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 8 June 2070 at 18:24
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 15 June 2070 at 13:40
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 23 June 2070 at 16:57

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 870 / 1823

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 870 of Meeus index or 1823 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes. It is 26 minutes longer 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 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠350.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠350.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠5.3°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 25 May 2070 at 10:55 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 June 2070 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 394 005 km

The Moon is 394 005 km (244 823 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 376 km (222 063 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 21 May 2070 at 18:54 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 June 2070 at 03:55 in ♈ Aries.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 26 May 2070 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.834°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.846° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 June 2070 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 8 June 2070 at 18:24 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.
