Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♉ Taurus later.

Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1900".

Sturgeon Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2086 after 25 days on 23 September 2086 at 01:15.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1071 / 2024

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1071 of Meeus index or 2024 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1071 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours shorter than next lunation 1072 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠129.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157.5°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 26 August 2086 at 02:04 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 September 2086 at 10:10 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 284 km

Moon is 364 284 km (226 356 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 378 km (252 512 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 18 August 2086 at 19:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 31 August 2086 at 08:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 19 August 2086 at 11:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.198°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.092° in the next northern standstill on 1 September 2086 at 02:04 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 8 September 2086 at 01:17 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
