Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 17 July 2059 at 20:34.

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 passing about ∠11° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1862"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1862" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2059 after 3 days on 25 July 2059 at 02:24.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Aquarius ♒ on 25 July 2059 at 02:24
  • Last Quarter in Taurus ♉ on 31 July 2059 at 16:43
  • New Moon in Leo ♌ on 8 August 2059 at 07:37
  • First Quarter in Scorpio ♏ on 16 August 2059 at 11:40

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 736 / 1689

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 736 of Meeus index or 1689 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 736 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 737 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠119.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠119.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠149.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 14 July 2059 at 18:59 in ♍ Virgo. 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 26 July 2059 at 20:05 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 384 847 km

Moon is 384 847 km (239 133 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 174 km (224 423 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 20 July 2059 at 05:06 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 1 August 2059 at 19:16 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 9 July 2059 at 00:30 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.603°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.645° in the next southern standstill on 23 July 2059 at 10:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 25 July 2059 at 02:24 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
