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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1818"

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 1242 / 2195

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 1 July 2100 at 09:51 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 July 2100 at 14:15 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 394 240 km

The Moon is 394 240 km (244 969 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 737 km (229 123 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 27 June 2100 at 05:37 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 July 2100 at 12:42 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon at northern standstill

At 01:14 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.198°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.246° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 19 July 2100 at 03:02.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 7 July 2100 at 12:06 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.
