Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 10 July 2044 at 06:22.

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.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1806"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2044 after 26 days on 8 August 2044 at 21:14.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 18 July 2044 at 02:47
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 24 July 2044 at 17:10

  • Full Moon in Aquarius ♒ on 8 August 2044 at 21:14

Moderate tide

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 550 / 1503

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 550 of Meeus index or 1503 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 550 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 551 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠0.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠0.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠16°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 8 July 2044 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2044 at 18:16 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 396 841 km

Moon is 396 841 km (246 586 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 737 km (222 909 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 30 June 2044 at 02:39 in ♍ Virgo, 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 14 July 2044 at 16:24 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 8 July 2044 at 11:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.308°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.369° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2044 at 09:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 24 July 2044 at 17:10 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
