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 leaving the last ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1927"

Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1888".

Sturgeon Moon after 17 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2069 after 17 days on 2 August 2069 at 23:44.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 18 July 2069 at 11:13

  • Last Quarter in Taurus ♉ on 9 August 2069 at 19:41

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 859 / 1812

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 859 of Meeus index or 1812 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 859 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 860 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠40.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 13 July 2069 at 15:08 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 July 2069 at 04:43 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 371 989 km

Moon is 371 989 km (231 143 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 051 km (251 066 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 13 July 2069 at 03:06 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 July 2069 at 17:40 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 15 July 2069 at 22:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.867°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.783° in the next southern standstill on 30 July 2069 at 03:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 18 July 2069 at 11:13 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
