Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2065 after 14 days on 16 August 2065 at 03:45.

Upcoming main Moon phases

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 810 / 1763

At 17:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 810 of Meeus index or 1763 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.52 days

29 days, 12 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 810. 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

5 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 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 August 2065 at 06:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 390 852 km

Moon is 390 852 km (242 864 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 504 km (229 599 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 05:11 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 14 August 2065 at 04:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
