Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 25 July 2065 at 06:22.

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 ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 17 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2065 after 17 days on 16 August 2065 at 03:45.

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 810 / 1763

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 810 of Meeus index or 1763 from Brown series.

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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 26 July 2065 at 15:50 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 August 2065 at 06:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 401 896 km

Moon is 401 896 km (249 727 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 504 km (229 599 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 August 2065 at 05:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon in northern standstill

At 06:45 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.196°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.171° in its southern standstill point on 11 August 2065 at 14:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 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.
