Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1889".

Sturgeon Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2071 after 15 days on 10 August 2071 at 23:39.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 884 / 1837

At 18:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 884 of Meeus index or 1837 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.28 days

29 days, 6 hours and 36 minutes is the length of new lunation 884. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:22, this is 14 days after last apogee on 12 July 2071 at 16:49 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 8 August 2071 at 20:04 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 357 370 km

This perigee Moon is 357 370 km (222 059 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2071. It is 5 138 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 945 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 18 July 2071 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 July 2071 at 18:19 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 24 July 2071 at 19:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.332°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.284° in the next southern standstill on 6 August 2071 at 22:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
