Buck Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2039 after 16 days on 6 July 2039 at 02:03.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 21 June 2039 at 17:21
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 29 June 2039 at 11:17

Neap tide

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 487 / 1440

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 487 of Meeus index or 1440 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 487 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 488 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 4 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.2°. 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 15:56, this is 13 days after last perigee on 6 June 2039 at 12:01 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 406 283 km

This apogee Moon is 406 283 km (252 453 mi) away from Earth. It is 875 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 426 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 7 June 2039 at 04:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 June 2039 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2039 at 11:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.703°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.701° in the next northern standstill on 22 June 2039 at 16:02 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 21 June 2039 at 17:21 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
