Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 11 August 2075 at 21:10.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1837"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2075 after 11 days on 26 August 2075 at 00:51.

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 935 / 1888

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 935 of Meeus index or 1888 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 935 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 936 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠218.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠251.8°. 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 after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 8 August 2075 at 04:19 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 August 2075 at 22:14 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 390 092 km

Moon is 390 092 km (242 392 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 690 km (225 365 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 8 August 2075 at 23:02 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 August 2075 at 16:33 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2075 at 18:41 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.688°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.754° in the next southern standstill on 22 August 2075 at 13:47 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 26 August 2075 at 00:51 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
