Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1892".

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2079 after 15 days on 14 June 2079 at 12:39.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 6 June 2079 at 11:18
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 14 June 2079 at 12:39

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 982 / 1935

At 18:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 982 of Meeus index or 1935 from Brown series.

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 2079. It is 12 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 ∠356.9°

The true anomaly is ∠356.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠12°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 23:00. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 17 May 2079 at 16:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 13 June 2079 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 272 km

This perigee Moon is 357 272 km (221 999 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2079. It is 5 236 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 847 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 28 May 2079 at 04:40 in ♉ Taurus. 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 10 June 2079 at 00:43 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, 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 19 May 2079 at 06:26 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.005°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠27.971° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 June 2079 at 11:25 in ♋ Cancer.

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.
