Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 30 June 2047 at 17:37.

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.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1947"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2047 after 1 day on 7 July 2047 at 10:33.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 7 July 2047 at 10:33
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 15 July 2047 at 00:09
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 22 July 2047 at 22:49
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 29 July 2047 at 22:03

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 587 / 1540

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 587 of Meeus index or 1540 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 587 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 588 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠240°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠240°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.9°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 4 July 2047 at 04:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 July 2047 at 03:57 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 056 km

Moon is 368 056 km (228 699 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 370 km (251 264 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 24 June 2047 at 13:16 in ♋ Cancer, 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 7 July 2047 at 11:43 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 15:10 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.343°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.339° in its northern standstill point on 19 July 2047 at 18:19 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 7 July 2047 at 10:33 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
