Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 5 August 2064 at 09:41.

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 in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1816"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1816" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2064 after 19 days on 26 August 2064 at 21:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 798 / 1751

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 798 of Meeus index or 1751 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 798 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 3 minutes. It is 41 minutes longer than next lunation 799 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠301.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325.7°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 2 August 2064 at 22:45 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 August 2064 at 20:26 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 394 712 km

Moon is 394 712 km (245 263 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 724 km (225 386 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 29 July 2064 at 02:05 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 August 2064 at 09:26 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 25 July 2064 at 00:49 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.393°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.403° in the next northern standstill on 8 August 2064 at 13:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 12 August 2064 at 17:49 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
