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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1819" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2030 after 13 days on 13 August 2030 at 10:44.

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 378 / 1331

At 11:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 378 of Meeus index or 1331 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.5 days

29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 378. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 379 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠244.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠279.9°. 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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 25 July 2030 at 04:55 in ♊ Gemini. 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 9 August 2030 at 22:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 393 948 km

Moon is 393 948 km (244 788 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 742 km (227 883 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 26 July 2030 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 August 2030 at 19:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 26 July 2030 at 10:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.659°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.572° in the next southern standstill on 9 August 2030 at 01:58 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.
