Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 13 August 2089 at 03:58.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1803"

Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1895".

Sturgeon Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2089 after 5 days on 21 August 2089 at 06:16.

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 1108 / 2061

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1108 of Meeus index or 2061 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.31 days

Length of current 1108 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 1109 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 55 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 ∠19.1°. 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 6 August 2089 at 03:33 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 August 2089 at 09:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 397 604 km

Moon is 397 604 km (247 060 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 195 km (252 398 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 10 August 2089 at 02:59 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 August 2089 at 15:08 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 3 August 2089 at 05:21 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.449°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in the next southern standstill on 16 August 2089 at 02:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 21 August 2089 at 06:16 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
