Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 23 July 2057 at 10:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2057 after 21 days on 14 August 2057 at 17:21.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 711 / 1664

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 711 of Meeus index or 1664 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 711 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 45 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 712 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠196.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠196.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠222.5°. 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 apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 15 July 2057 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 July 2057 at 15:44 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 399 843 km

Moon is 399 843 km (248 451 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 562 km (252 005 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 14 July 2057 at 23:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 July 2057 at 14:55 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2057 at 13:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.701°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.709° in the next northern standstill on 29 July 2057 at 08:55 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 31 July 2057 at 14:32 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
