Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 22 July 2053 at 14:16.

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.

Buck Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2053 after 1 day on 30 July 2053 at 17:06.

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 662 / 1615

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 662 of Meeus index or 1615 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 662 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 15 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 663 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 40 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.3°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 28 July 2053 at 06:44 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2053 at 14:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 115 km

Moon is 405 115 km (251 727 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 223 km (223 832 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 19 July 2053 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 August 2053 at 22:15 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 27 July 2053 at 19:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.438°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.377° in the next northern standstill on 10 August 2053 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 30 July 2053 at 17:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
