Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2087 after 15 days on 12 September 2087 at 16:43.

Upcoming main Moon phases

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1084 / 2037

At 05:08 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1084 of Meeus index or 2037 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.57 days

29 days, 13 hours and 39 minutes is the length of new lunation 1084. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter than next lunation 1085 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠95.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠95.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.7°. 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 before apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 19 August 2087 at 10:24 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 September 2087 at 11:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 390 260 km

Moon is 390 260 km (242 496 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 474 km (251 328 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 20 August 2087 at 13:00 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 September 2087 at 03:54 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 22 August 2087 at 16:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.473°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.343° in the next southern standstill on 5 September 2087 at 19:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
