Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 17 July 2065 at 17:45.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1826"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1826" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2065 after 25 days on 16 August 2065 at 03:45.

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 810 / 1763

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 810 of Meeus index or 1763 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 810 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 811 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠235.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠235.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠270.8°. 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

6 days after point of perigee on 14 July 2065 at 17:50 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 26 July 2065 at 15:50 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 392 548 km

Moon is 392 548 km (243 918 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 434 km (251 304 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 17 July 2065 at 20:19 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 August 2065 at 05:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2065 at 07:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.199°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.196° in the next northern standstill on 29 July 2065 at 06:45 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 2 August 2065 at 05:46 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
