Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2047 after 14 days on 5 August 2047 at 20:38.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 588 / 1541

At 22:49 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 588 of Meeus index or 1541 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.44 days

29 days, 10 hours and 27 minutes is the length of new lunation 588. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 589 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 17 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 52 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠274.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠274.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠306.1°. 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 apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 16 July 2047 at 03:57 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 July 2047 at 09:01 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 388 396 km

Moon is 388 396 km (241 338 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 644 km (229 686 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 21 July 2047 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 August 2047 at 19:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 19 July 2047 at 18:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.339°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.317° in the next southern standstill on 1 August 2047 at 22:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
