Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 14 July 2045 at 10:28.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2045 after 12 days on 28 July 2045 at 22:11.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 563 / 1516

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 563 of Meeus index or 1516 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 563 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 11 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2045. It is 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 564 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠345.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.7°. 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 15 July 2045 at 07:12 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2045 at 02:00 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 427 km

Moon is 363 427 km (225 823 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 198 km (252 400 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 11:05 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 30 July 2045 at 07:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 12 July 2045 at 12:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.744°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.770° in the next southern standstill on 25 July 2045 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 28 July 2045 at 22:11 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
