Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2038 after 4 days on 16 July 2038 at 11:48.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 16 July 2038 at 11:48

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 476 / 1429

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 476 of Meeus index or 1429 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 476 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 477 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠259.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠259.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠293.3°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:32, this is 15 days after last apogee on 26 June 2038 at 12:55 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 July 2038 at 07:19 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 535 km

This perigee Moon is 368 535 km (228 997 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 027 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 821 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 2 July 2038 at 12:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 July 2038 at 11:58 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 2 July 2038 at 16:20 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.041°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.036° in the next southern standstill on 15 July 2038 at 15:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 16 July 2038 at 11:48 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
