Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 29 May 2090 at 07:29.

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 passing about ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1892"

Lunar disc appears visually 0% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1892" and ∠1892".

Strawberry Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2090 after 12 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 5 June 2090 at 05:45
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 12 June 2090 at 05:18
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 20 June 2090 at 03:33
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 27 June 2090 at 17:11

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 1118 / 2071

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 1118 of Meeus index or 2071 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 34 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠280.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠280.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠310°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 378 907 km

The Moon is 378 907 km (235 442 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 767 km (229 763 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after descending node on 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 June 2090 at 01:10 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 23:17 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.414°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.449° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 12 June 2090 at 22:32.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18 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.
