Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1896".

Sturgeon Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2089 after 1 day on 21 August 2089 at 06:16.

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 1108 / 2061

The Moon is 13 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 09:33, this is 13 days after last perigee on 6 August 2089 at 03:33 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 3 September 2089 at 12:32 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 406 195 km

This apogee Moon is 406 195 km (252 398 mi) away from Earth. It is 787 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 514 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

9 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 5 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

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

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 16 August 2089 at 02:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.382°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.297° in the next northern standstill on 30 August 2089 at 14:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
