Buck Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2076 after 28 days on 14 August 2076 at 17:11.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Taurus ♉ on 23 July 2076 at 00:40

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 946 / 1899

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 946 of Meeus index or 1899 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 946 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 1 minute. It is 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 947 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠145.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠145.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠170.2°. 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 05:58, this is 12 days after last apogee on 4 July 2076 at 16:02 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 1 August 2076 at 00:12 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 358 186 km

This perigee Moon is 358 186 km (222 566 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 322 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 170 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 14 July 2076 at 12:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 July 2076 at 08:20 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 15 July 2076 at 12:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.329°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.331° in the next northern standstill on 28 July 2076 at 15:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 30 July 2076 at 22:05 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
