Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 18 July 2086 at 21:45.

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 ♏ Scorpio

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1809" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2086 after 4 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24.

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 1070 / 2023

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1070 of Meeus index or 2023 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 1070 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 1071 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠95.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠95.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2086 at 04:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 July 2086 at 01:59 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 396 156 km

Moon is 396 156 km (246 160 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 494 km (226 486 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 8 July 2086 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 July 2086 at 14:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 8 July 2086 at 14:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.447°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.388° in the next southern standstill on 23 July 2086 at 01:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
