Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 30 August 2057 at 03:54.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1885"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1885" and ∠1902".

Harvest Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2057 after 11 days on 13 September 2057 at 02:53.

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 713 / 1666

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 713 of Meeus index or 1666 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 713 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 6 minutes. It is 47 minutes longer than next lunation 714 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠255.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠255.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.1°. 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

8 days after point of apogee on 24 August 2057 at 07:38 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 September 2057 at 19:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 380 326 km

Moon is 380 326 km (236 324 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 286 km (228 842 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 24 August 2057 at 19:03 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 September 2057 at 10:33 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2057 at 15:28 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.822°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.933° in the next southern standstill on 8 September 2057 at 05:28 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 13 September 2057 at 02:53 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
