Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 8 July 2030 at 11:02.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1964"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2030 after 1 day on 15 July 2030 at 02:12.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 15 July 2030 at 02:12
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 22 July 2030 at 08:07
  • New Moon in Leo ♌ on 30 July 2030 at 11:11
  • First Quarter in Scorpio ♏ on 6 August 2030 at 16:43

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 377 / 1330

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 377 of Meeus index or 1330 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 377 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 378 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠213.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠213.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠244.5°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:12, this is 15 days after last apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 25 July 2030 at 04:55 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 361 792 km

This perigee Moon is 361 792 km (224 807 mi) away from Earth. It is 716 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 564 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 12 July 2030 at 14:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 July 2030 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 12 July 2030 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.706°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.659° in the next northern standstill on 26 July 2030 at 10:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 15 July 2030 at 02:12 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
