Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2036 after 27 days on 7 August 2036 at 02:49.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 16 July 2036 at 14:39
  • New Moon in Leo ♌ on 23 July 2036 at 10:17

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 451 / 1404

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 451 of Meeus index or 1404 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 451 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2036. It is 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 452 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.1°. 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 apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 16:20, this is 15 days after last perigee on 25 June 2036 at 10:31 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2036 at 18:38 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 005 km

This apogee Moon is 406 005 km (252 280 mi) away from Earth. It is 597 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 704 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 27 June 2036 at 02:46 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 July 2036 at 00:53 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 7 July 2036 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.902°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.877° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2036 at 00:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 23 July 2036 at 10:17 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
