Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 24 July 2055 at 09:48.

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 passing about ∠17° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Sturgeon Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2055 after 12 days on 7 August 2055 at 10:57.

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 687 / 1640

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 687 of Meeus index or 1640 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.35 days

Length of current 687 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 27 minutes. It is 22 minutes longer than next lunation 688 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 17 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 52 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠315.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠315.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336.4°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 15 July 2055 at 07:49 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 July 2055 at 04:56 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 369 385 km

Moon is 369 385 km (229 525 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 935 km (226 760 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 00:16 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 7 August 2055 at 01:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 00:16 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 22 July 2055 at 22:16 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.410°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.399° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2055 at 18:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 7 August 2055 at 10:57 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
