Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1819" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2088 after 26 days on 2 August 2088 at 13:39.

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 1094 / 2047

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1094 of Meeus index or 2047 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 1094 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2088. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1095 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠3.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.9°. 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

5 days after point of apogee on 2 July 2088 at 03:52 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 July 2088 at 05:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 394 072 km

Moon is 394 072 km (244 865 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 287 km (223 251 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 28 June 2088 at 05:57 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 July 2088 at 16:44 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 2 July 2088 at 04:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.425°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.354° in the next northern standstill on 16 July 2088 at 02:03 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 18 July 2088 at 08:38 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
