Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 25 July 2082 at 15:54.

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 ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1949"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2082 after 11 days on 8 August 2082 at 14:33.

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 1021 / 1974

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1021 of Meeus index or 1974 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.39 days

Length of current 1021 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 24 minutes. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1022 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠298.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠298.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠323.3°. 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

10 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 July 2082 at 23:55 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 367 844 km

Moon is 367 844 km (228 568 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 196 km (228 786 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 27 July 2082 at 09:04 in ♌ Leo, 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 9 August 2082 at 10:22 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 22 July 2082 at 18:54 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.898°. Next 7 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 11 days

After 11 days on 8 August 2082 at 14:33 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
