Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 10 August 2067 at 02:36.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1774"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1893".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2067 after 13 days on 24 August 2067 at 16:57.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 836 / 1789

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 836 of Meeus index or 1789 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 836 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 32 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2067. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 837 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠207.1°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 9 August 2067 at 18:29 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 August 2067 at 03:23 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 146 km

Moon is 404 146 km (251 125 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 474 km (222 124 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 5 August 2067 at 05:26 in ♊ Gemini, 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 19 August 2067 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 5 August 2067 at 03:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.998°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.875° in the next southern standstill on 19 August 2067 at 18:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 24 August 2067 at 16:57 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
