Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 11 September 2064 at 02:11.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Harvest Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2064 after 10 days on 25 September 2064 at 13:38.

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 800 / 1753

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 800 of Meeus index or 1753 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.35 days

Length of current 800 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 23 minutes. It is 48 minutes shorter than next lunation 801 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠344°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠344°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠359.5°. 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 perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 12 September 2064 at 00:51 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 September 2064 at 00:14 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 367 425 km

Moon is 367 425 km (228 307 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 395 km (252 522 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 8 September 2064 at 19:25 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 September 2064 at 13:35 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 4 September 2064 at 22:06 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.341°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.279° in the next southern standstill on 17 September 2064 at 12:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
