Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 29 July 2049 at 20:07.

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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1778"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2049 after 12 days on 13 August 2049 at 09:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 613 / 1566

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 613 of Meeus index or 1566 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 613 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 11 minutes. It is 25 minutes longer than next lunation 614 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠185.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠210.2°. 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 29 July 2049 at 04:27 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2049 at 17:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 164 km

Moon is 403 164 km (250 514 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 750 km (222 296 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 24 July 2049 at 21:01 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 August 2049 at 08:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 25 July 2049 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.002°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.891° in the next southern standstill on 9 August 2049 at 04:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 13 August 2049 at 09:19 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
