Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 13 June 2096 at 18:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 17 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2096 after 17 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 20 June 2096 at 09:12

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 1192 / 2145

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1192 of Meeus index or 2145 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2096. It is 33 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠10°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠26.7°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 18:27. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 30 June 2096 at 19:58 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 361 025 km

This perigee Moon is 361 025 km (224 331 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 483 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 331 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 09:30 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 2 July 2096 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 09:30 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

PreviousNext

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 8 June 2096 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.345°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.330° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 June 2096 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 20 June 2096 at 09:12 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
