Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 2 August 2067 at 01:51.

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.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1804"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2067 after 19 days on 24 August 2067 at 16:57.

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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 before apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 26 July 2067 at 17:23 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 August 2067 at 18:29 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 397 260 km

Moon is 397 260 km (246 846 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 600 km (252 650 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 05:26 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 19 August 2067 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon in northern standstill

At 03:19 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.998°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.875° in its southern standstill point on 19 August 2067 at 18:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 10 August 2067 at 02:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
