Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2065 after 15 days on 17 July 2065 at 17:45.

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 809 / 1762

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 809 of Meeus index or 1762 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 809 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 810 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠206.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.9°. 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 28 June 2065 at 22:35 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 July 2065 at 17:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 403 km

Moon is 400 403 km (248 799 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 373 km (227 032 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 20 June 2065 at 10:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 July 2065 at 21:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 1 July 2065 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.180°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.199° in the next southern standstill on 15 July 2065 at 07:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 3 July 2065 at 17:16 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
