Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1955"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2100 after 6 days on 22 June 2100 at 01:11.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 22 June 2100 at 01:11
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 29 June 2100 at 11:52

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 1242 / 2195

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1242 of Meeus index or 2195 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.52 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 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 9 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠227.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠227.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠261°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 3 June 2100 at 17:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 June 2100 at 12:17 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 366 708 km

The Moon is 366 708 km (227 862 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 024 km (226 194 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 14 June 2100 at 11:14 in ♍ Virgo. 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 27 June 2100 at 05:37 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 8 June 2100 at 18:51 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.177°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.185° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 June 2100 at 19:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 22 June 2100 at 01:11 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.
