Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1895".

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2061 after 15 days on 30 August 2061 at 22:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 762 / 1715

At 09:39 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 762 of Meeus index or 1715 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.46 days

29 days, 10 hours and 58 minutes is the length of new lunation 762. It is 3 hours and 6 minutes shorter than next lunation 763 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 23 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠53.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠53.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠84.5°. 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 after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 11 August 2061 at 19:47 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 August 2061 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 377 429 km

Moon is 377 429 km (234 524 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 229 km (251 176 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 6 August 2061 at 04:44 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 August 2061 at 00:57 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 11 August 2061 at 20:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.426°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.503° in the next southern standstill on 25 August 2061 at 17:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
