Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 11 July 2067 at 11:16.

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 ∠19° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1788"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2067 after 9 days on 26 July 2067 at 09:58.

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 835 / 1788

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 835 of Meeus index or 1788 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 835 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 836 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠159.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠159.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. 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 13 July 2067 at 14:29 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 July 2067 at 17:23 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 832 km

Moon is 400 832 km (249 065 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 147 km (221 921 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 9 July 2067 at 01:59 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 July 2067 at 12:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 8 July 2067 at 21:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.104°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.048° in the next southern standstill on 23 July 2067 at 09:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 26 July 2067 at 09:58 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
