Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 28 July 2077 at 02:55.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1850"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1891".

Sturgeon Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2077 after 3 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 959 of Meeus index or 1912 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 25 July 2077 at 07:09 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2077 at 07:02 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 387 398 km

Moon is 387 398 km (240 718 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 718 km (224 761 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 30 July 2077 at 13:27 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 August 2077 at 04:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 18 July 2077 at 14:18 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.808°. Next day 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 3 days

After 3 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.
