Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1800"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 20 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2084 after 20 days on 16 August 2084 at 00:29.

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 1045 / 1998

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1045 of Meeus index or 1998 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1045 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 26 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2084. It is 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1046 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠180.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠180.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.8°. 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 apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 17 July 2084 at 06:12 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2084 at 05:23 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 398 119 km

Moon is 398 119 km (247 380 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 129 km (252 357 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 17 July 2084 at 07:42 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 July 2084 at 00:13 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2084 at 08:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.650°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.646° in the next northern standstill on 28 July 2084 at 10:54 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 1 August 2084 at 17:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
