Moon phase and lunation details

5 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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1826"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1826" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2063 after 2 days on 10 July 2063 at 13:48.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 10 July 2063 at 13:48
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 18 July 2063 at 18:05

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 785 / 1738

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 785 of Meeus index or 1738 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.31 days

Length of current 785 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes. It is 8 minutes longer than next lunation 786 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠325.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠325.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.4°. 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 apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 28 June 2063 at 13:31 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 July 2063 at 06:53 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 392 488 km

Moon is 392 488 km (243 881 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 517 km (251 977 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 30 June 2063 at 13:32 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 July 2063 at 10:44 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in southern standstill

At 18:22 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.119°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.174° in its northern standstill point on 23 July 2063 at 05:47 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 10 July 2063 at 13:48 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
