Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 8 June 2070 at 18:24.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1890".

Strawberry Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2070 after 14 days on 23 June 2070 at 16:57.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 15 June 2070 at 13:40
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 23 June 2070 at 16:57
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 1 July 2070 at 10:33
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 8 July 2070 at 01:14

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 871 / 1824

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 871 of Meeus index or 1824 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2070. It is 47 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 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠5.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠21.1°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 8 June 2070 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 21 June 2070 at 14:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 406 km

The Moon is 364 406 km (226 431 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 125 km (252 354 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 5 June 2070 at 03:55 in ♈ Aries. 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 17 June 2070 at 21:35 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon at northern standstill

At 03:14 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.846°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.860° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 23 June 2070 at 00:15.

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 23 June 2070 at 16:57 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.
