Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

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 ♒ Aquarius

Harvest Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2061 after 2 days on 29 September 2061 at 09:32.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 763 / 1716

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 763 of Meeus index or 1716 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 763 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes shorter than next lunation 764 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 20 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 43 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠84.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠84.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠120.1°. 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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 20 September 2061 at 15:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 October 2061 at 13:00 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 389 609 km

Moon is 389 609 km (242 092 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 993 km (227 418 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 15 September 2061 at 08:16 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 September 2061 at 16:29 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 22 September 2061 at 01:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.618°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.627° in the next northern standstill on 5 October 2061 at 08:08 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 29 September 2061 at 09:32 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
