Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 8 August 2057 at 01:30.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2057 after 3 days on 14 August 2057 at 17:21.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 712 / 1665

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 712 of Meeus index or 1665 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 712 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 23 minutes. 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 before perigee

14 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2057 at 10:32 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 502 km

Moon is 363 502 km (225 870 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 290 km (225 738 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 07:29 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 24 August 2057 at 19:03 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon in southern standstill

At 22:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.760°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.822° in its northern standstill point on 25 August 2057 at 15:28 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 14 August 2057 at 17:21 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
