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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1898".

Harvest Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2063 after 14 days on 7 September 2063 at 20:53.

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 787 / 1740

At 01:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 787 of Meeus index or 1740 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.34 days

29 days, 8 hours and 4 minutes is the length of new lunation 787. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 788 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14.3°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 02:53, this is 13 days after last apogee on 10 August 2063 at 16:02 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 September 2063 at 18:12 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 357 256 km

This perigee Moon is 357 256 km (221 989 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 252 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 100 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 06:07 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 6 September 2063 at 22:09 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 19 August 2063 at 15:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.242°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.251° in the next southern standstill on 1 September 2063 at 05:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
