Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 18 August 2067 at 01:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1958"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1897".

Sturgeon Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2067 after 3 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 836 / 1789

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 before perigee

11 days 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 2 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 366 025 km

Moon is 366 025 km (227 437 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 474 km (222 124 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 19 August 2067 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 September 2067 at 06:54 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 19 August 2067 at 18:29 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.875°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.778° in the next northern standstill on 1 September 2067 at 09:55 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 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.
