Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1925"

Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2090 after 13 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 4 July 2090 at 10:37
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 11 July 2090 at 17:02

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 1119 / 2072

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 1119 of Meeus index or 2072 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 8 minutes. It is 28 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 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠310°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠331.5°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 June 2090 at 23:26 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 372 341 km

The Moon is 372 341 km (231 362 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 238 km (227 570 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 19 June 2090 at 18:49 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2090 at 01:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

22 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

1 day since the previous standstill on 27 June 2090 at 08:45 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.446°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.430° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 July 2090 at 07:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
