Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 5 June 2090 at 05:45.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♎ Libra

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2090 after 5 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 12 June 2090 at 05:18
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 20 June 2090 at 03:33

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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo. 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 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 364 445 km

The Moon is 364 445 km (226 456 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 160 km (251 133 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 01:10 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 19 June 2090 at 18:49 in ♓ Pisces.

New draconic month

At 01:10 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before southern standstill

6 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 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.449° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 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.
