Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1823"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 14 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.

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 1033 / 1986

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 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

5 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 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 393 201 km

Moon is 393 201 km (244 324 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 256 km (229 445 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 13:29 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 25 August 2083 at 13:34 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.955°. Next 9 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 1 day

After 1 day 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.
