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 ♋ Cancer

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2035 after 16 days on 19 August 2035 at 01:00.

Upcoming main Moon phases

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 439 of Meeus index or 1392 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 439 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 440 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 04:06, this is 15 days after last apogee on 17 July 2035 at 17:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 360 719 km

This perigee Moon is 360 719 km (224 140 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 789 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 637 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 August 2035 at 09:20 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 1 August 2035 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.787°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.761° in the next southern standstill on 14 August 2035 at 22:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 3 August 2035 at 17:12 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
