Upcoming main Moon phases

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 662 / 1615

At 17:26 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 662 of Meeus index or 1615 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.3 days

29 days, 7 hours and 15 minutes is the length of new lunation 662. 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 12 August 2053 at 14:58 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 August 2053 at 18:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 365 671 km

Moon is 365 671 km (227 217 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 238 km (251 803 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 2 August 2053 at 22:15 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 August 2053 at 17:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 10 August 2053 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.377°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.341° in the next southern standstill on 24 August 2053 at 02:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
