Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 22 July 2007 at 06:29.

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 leaving the last ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1777"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2007 after 5 days on 30 July 2007 at 00:48.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 93 / 1046

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 93 of Meeus index or 1046 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 93 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 59 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 94 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠64.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠64.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠97.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 22 July 2007 at 08:43 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 August 2007 at 23:52 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 276 km

Moon is 403 276 km (250 584 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 892 km (229 219 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 18 July 2007 at 00:18 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 August 2007 at 06:03 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 12 July 2007 at 16:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.251°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.300° in the next southern standstill on 26 July 2007 at 23:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 30 July 2007 at 00:48 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
