Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 15 June 2100 at 09:41.

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 ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1965"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1888".

Strawberry Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2100 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1242 of Meeus index or 2195 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 12:17. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 3 June 2100 at 17:09 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 1 July 2100 at 09:51 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 024 km

This perigee Moon is 364 024 km (226 194 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 516 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 332 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 14 June 2100 at 11:14 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2100 at 05:37 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

19 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

10 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 2 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 2 days

In 2 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.
