Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1876"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1888".

Sturgeon Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2063 after 18 days on 9 August 2063 at 04:40.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 25 July 2063 at 17:55
  • First Quarter in Scorpio ♏ on 1 August 2063 at 09:09

  • Last Quarter in Taurus ♉ on 17 August 2063 at 07:01

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 785 / 1738

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 14 July 2063 at 06:53 in ♓ Pisces. 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 2063 at 17:32 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 382 109 km

Moon is 382 109 km (237 432 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 907 km (223 014 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 14 July 2063 at 10:44 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 July 2063 at 19:57 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 8 July 2063 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.119°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.174° in the next northern standstill on 23 July 2063 at 05:47 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 25 July 2063 at 17:55 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
