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 leaving the last ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1770"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1891".

Sturgeon Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2084 after 15 days on 16 August 2084 at 00:29.

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 1045 / 1998

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 1045 of Meeus index or 1998 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 30 July 2084 at 05:23 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 August 2084 at 14:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 041 km

Moon is 405 041 km (251 681 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 203 km (223 820 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 00:13 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 13 August 2084 at 17:30 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 28 July 2084 at 10:54 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.646°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.594° in the next southern standstill on 11 August 2084 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
