Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

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.

Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 453 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 454 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.8°. 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 before apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 21 August 2036 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 September 2036 at 00:30 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 403 895 km

Moon is 403 895 km (250 969 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 835 km (252 174 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 31 August 2036 at 09:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.884°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.957° in the next northern standstill on 14 September 2036 at 18:44 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 5 September 2036 at 18:45 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
