Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 28 July 2058 at 16:19.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1952"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1891".

Sturgeon Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2058 after 2 days on 4 August 2058 at 09:37.

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 724 / 1677

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 724 of Meeus index or 1677 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 724 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 23 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2058. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 725 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠173.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠196°. 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

11 days after point of apogee on 21 July 2058 at 10:15 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 August 2058 at 05:22 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 367 233 km

Moon is 367 233 km (228 188 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 996 km (221 827 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 31 July 2058 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 August 2058 at 02:08 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 19 July 2058 at 03:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.278°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.332° in the next southern standstill on 2 August 2058 at 07:06 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 4 August 2058 at 09:37 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
