Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1960"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1887".

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 1119 / 2072

The Moon is 3 days 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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 23:26. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 16 July 2090 at 18:12 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 366 238 km

This perigee Moon is 366 238 km (227 570 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 730 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 118 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 19 June 2090 at 18:49 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 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

24 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

3 days 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 9 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 11 days

In 11 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.
