Buck Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2071 after 1 day on 12 July 2071 at 08:25.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 884 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2071. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 885 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠350.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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 apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 28 June 2071 at 08:00 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 July 2071 at 16:49 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 333 km

Moon is 403 333 km (250 620 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 386 km (252 517 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 3 July 2071 at 14:17 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 July 2071 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in southern standstill

At 15:45 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.403°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.332° in its northern standstill point on 24 July 2071 at 19:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 12 July 2071 at 08:25 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
