Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

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.

Buck Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2029 after 2 days on 25 July 2029 at 13:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 365 / 1318

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 365 of Meeus index or 1318 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 365 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 366 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠279.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠279.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠309.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 18 July 2029 at 11:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 August 2029 at 10:42 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 375 979 km

Moon is 375 979 km (233 623 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 310 km (251 227 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 11:12 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 22 July 2029 at 07:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.380°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.323° in the next northern standstill on 5 August 2029 at 14:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 25 July 2029 at 13:36 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
