Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 19 July 2054 at 17:47.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2054 after 26 days on 18 August 2054 at 09:22.

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 674 / 1627

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 674 of Meeus index or 1627 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 674 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 14 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2054. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 675 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 39 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠336°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠336°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.3°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 05:49, this is 15 days after last perigee on 6 July 2054 at 21:10 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 August 2054 at 04:47 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 947 km

This apogee Moon is 405 947 km (252 244 mi) away from Earth. It is 539 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 762 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 09:02 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 4 August 2054 at 20:23 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 18 July 2054 at 03:03 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.176°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.139° in the next northern standstill on 1 August 2054 at 11:52 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 3 August 2054 at 17:48 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
