Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 5 August 2083 at 12:38.

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 ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1789"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1789" and ∠1893".

Sturgeon Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 16 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.

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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 578 km

Moon is 400 578 km (248 908 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 256 km (229 445 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 29 July 2083 at 04:55 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 12 August 2083 at 13:29 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

12 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 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.955°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.925° in the next southern standstill on 22 August 2083 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 13 August 2083 at 12:45 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
