Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 17 July 2082 at 22:58.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1861"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1861" and ∠1889".

Sturgeon Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2082 after 15 days on 8 August 2082 at 14:33.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1020 / 1973

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1020 of Meeus index or 1973 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 1020 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 1021 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠265.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.1°. 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 before perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2082 at 16:24 in ♈ Aries. 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 29 July 2082 at 23:55 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 385 115 km

Moon is 385 115 km (239 299 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 196 km (228 786 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 13 July 2082 at 02:53 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 July 2082 at 09:04 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 22 July 2082 at 18:54 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.898°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.934° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2082 at 16:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 25 July 2082 at 15:54 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
