Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days 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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2090 after 7 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

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 1118 / 2071

The Moon is 6 days 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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 21:08. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces. 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 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 767 km

This perigee Moon is 369 767 km (229 763 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2090. It is 7 259 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 589 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, 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

25 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 after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 30 May 2090 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.414°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.449° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 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.
