Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Lunation 403 / 1356

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 403 of Meeus index or 1356 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 403 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes. It is 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 404 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠166.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠166.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠189.3°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 21 August 2032 at 03:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 September 2032 at 19:58 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 392 318 km

Moon is 392 318 km (243 775 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 561 km (252 625 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 25 August 2032 at 09:01 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 September 2032 at 21:41 in ♎ Libra.

Moon in northern standstill

At 03:57 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.299°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.181° in its southern standstill point on 12 September 2032 at 21:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 4 September 2032 at 20:57 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
