Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1793" and ∠1891".

Sturgeon Moon after 14 days

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

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

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 712 / 1665

At 14:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 712 of Meeus index or 1665 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.56 days

29 days, 13 hours and 23 minutes is the length of new lunation 712. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 713 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠222.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.9°. 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 27 July 2057 at 15:44 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2057 at 10:32 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 399 709 km

Moon is 399 709 km (248 368 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 290 km (225 738 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 28 July 2057 at 14:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 August 2057 at 07:29 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 29 July 2057 at 08:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.709°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.760° in the next southern standstill on 11 August 2057 at 22:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
