Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 17 September 2058 at 22:17.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1932"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1932" and ∠1913".

Hunter Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 7 days on 2 October 2058 at 01:36.

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 726 / 1679

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 726 of Meeus index or 1679 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 726 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 43 minutes longer than next lunation 727 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠223°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠223°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠257.8°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 13 September 2058 at 22:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 September 2058 at 18:56 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 370 915 km

Moon is 370 915 km (230 476 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 283 km (225 734 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 23 September 2058 at 15:09 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 6 October 2058 at 07:21 in ♊ Gemini.

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

12 days after previous North standstill on 11 September 2058 at 14:56 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.586°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.727° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2058 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 2 October 2058 at 01:36 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
