Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 22 July 2083 at 08:56.

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 leaving the last ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1963"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2083 after 2 days on 29 July 2083 at 01:00.

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 1033 / 1986

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1033 of Meeus index or 1986 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 1033 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 1034 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 7 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 56 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠232°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠232°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠266.6°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 06:24, this is 15 days after last apogee on 10 July 2083 at 10:51 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 756 km

This perigee Moon is 364 756 km (226 649 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 248 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 600 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 16 July 2083 at 06:07 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 July 2083 at 04:55 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 00:18 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.954°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.955° in its northern standstill point on 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 29 July 2083 at 01:00 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
