Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 August 2063 at 04:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♓ Pisces

Sturgeon Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2063 after 28 days on 7 September 2063 at 20:53.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 786 / 1739

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 786 of Meeus index or 1739 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.31 days

Length of current 786 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2063. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 787 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠343.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠343.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠358.9°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 16:02, this is 14 days after last perigee on 26 July 2063 at 17:32 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 24 August 2063 at 02:53 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 406 175 km

This apogee Moon is 406 175 km (252 385 mi) away from Earth. It is 767 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 534 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 15:51 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 24 August 2063 at 06:07 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 15:51 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 4 August 2063 at 23:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.211°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.242° in the next northern standstill on 19 August 2063 at 15:04 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 24 August 2063 at 01:17 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
