Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1944" and ∠1905".

Harvest Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2029 after 14 days on 22 September 2029 at 16:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 367 / 1320

At 10:44 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 367 of Meeus index or 1320 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.35 days

29 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 367. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2029. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 368 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠331.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 29 August 2029 at 04:45 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2029 at 04:27 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 368 656 km

Moon is 368 656 km (229 072 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 349 km (224 532 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 3 September 2029 at 01:43 in ♋ Cancer, 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 15 September 2029 at 16:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 1 September 2029 at 23:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.127°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.021° in the next southern standstill on 14 September 2029 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
