Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 19 August 2064 at 08:55.

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1813"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1813" and ∠1899".

Sturgeon Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2064 after 1 day on 26 August 2064 at 21:35.

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 799 / 1752

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 799 of Meeus index or 1752 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.35 days

Length of current 799 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 800 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠325.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠325.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠344°. 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

10 days after point of perigee on 14 August 2064 at 20:26 in ♍ Virgo. 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 30 August 2064 at 14:46 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 395 427 km

Moon is 395 427 km (245 707 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 759 km (252 127 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 09:06 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 8 September 2064 at 19:25 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 09:06 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 21 August 2064 at 06:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.397°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.341° in the next northern standstill on 4 September 2064 at 22:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 26 August 2064 at 21:35 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
