Buck Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2057 after 15 days on 16 July 2057 at 09:28.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 1 July 2057 at 23:47
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 9 July 2057 at 18:37
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 16 July 2057 at 09:28

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 710 / 1663

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 710 of Meeus index or 1663 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 710 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 36 minutes. It is 51 minutes longer than next lunation 711 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 11 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠173.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠196.2°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 05:32, this is 13 days after last perigee on 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2057 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 406 331 km

This apogee Moon is 406 331 km (252 482 mi) away from Earth. It is 923 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 378 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 17 June 2057 at 13:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 July 2057 at 09:00 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 18 June 2057 at 03:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.700°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.700° in the next northern standstill on 2 July 2057 at 02:54 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 1 July 2057 at 23:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
