Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2087 after 2 days on 15 July 2087 at 19:54.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 15 July 2087 at 19:54

Lunation 1082 / 2035

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1082 of Meeus index or 2035 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1082 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 1083 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.7°. 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

3 days after point of apogee on 9 July 2087 at 22:18 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 July 2087 at 08:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 131 km

Moon is 400 131 km (248 630 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 392 km (228 908 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 10 July 2087 at 23:01 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 July 2087 at 12:18 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon in southern standstill

At 01:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-20.759°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠20.684° in its northern standstill point on 26 July 2087 at 09:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 15 July 2087 at 19:54 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
