Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 2 August 2065 at 05:46.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1925"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2065 after 10 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 811 / 1764

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 811 of Meeus index or 1764 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 811 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 812 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠270.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠270.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠303.1°. 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 perigee

9 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 4 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 372 383 km

Moon is 372 383 km (231 388 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 504 km (229 599 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 1 August 2065 at 05:11 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 August 2065 at 04:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 29 July 2065 at 06:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.196°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.171° in the next southern standstill on 11 August 2065 at 14:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 16 August 2065 at 03:45 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
