Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 23 July 2070 at 07:02.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

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 872 / 1825

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 872 of Meeus index or 1825 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 872 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours shorter than next lunation 873 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠21.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.1°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 19 July 2070 at 01:07 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 August 2070 at 20:19 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 375 350 km

Moon is 375 350 km (233 232 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 129 km (226 259 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 14 July 2070 at 23:10 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2070 at 08:38 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 20 July 2070 at 08:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.774°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.683° in the next northern standstill on 3 August 2070 at 00:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 6 August 2070 at 08:51 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
