Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 16 June 2097 at 18:22.

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 in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2097 after 1 day on 24 June 2097 at 19:03.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 24 June 2097 at 19:03
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 2 July 2097 at 17:05
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 9 July 2097 at 08:58
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 16 July 2097 at 06:10

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 1205 / 2158

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1205 of Meeus index or 2158 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2097. It is 18 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 6 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠355.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠10°.

Moon before perigee

13 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2097 at 09:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 June 2097 at 09:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 109 km

The Moon is 405 109 km (251 723 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 338 km (252 487 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 20 June 2097 at 09:05 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 July 2097 at 19:44 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 11 June 2097 at 04:55 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.467°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.434° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 June 2097 at 00:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 24 June 2097 at 19:03 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.
