Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 20 July 2077 at 00:41.

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 ∠23° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".

Sturgeon Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2077 after 10 days on 4 August 2077 at 09:46.

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 959 / 1912

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 959 of Meeus index or 1912 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 959 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 960 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠115.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠115.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠146°. 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

14 days after point of perigee on 9 July 2077 at 14:18 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 July 2077 at 07:09 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 405 328 km

Moon is 405 328 km (251 859 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 036 km (251 678 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 16 July 2077 at 02:42 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 July 2077 at 13:27 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 18 July 2077 at 14:18 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.808°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.863° in the next southern standstill on 2 August 2077 at 02:04 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 4 August 2077 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
