Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 19 July 2090 at 20:16.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1841"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1841" and ∠1889".

Sturgeon Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2090 after 18 days on 10 August 2090 at 06:51.

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 1119 / 2072

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1119 of Meeus index or 2072 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 1119 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 8 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 1120 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠310°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 16 July 2090 at 18:12 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 July 2090 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 389 323 km

Moon is 389 323 km (241 914 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 406 km (224 567 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 16 July 2090 at 21:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 July 2090 at 05:38 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 10 July 2090 at 07:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.430°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.374° in the next northern standstill on 24 July 2090 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 27 July 2090 at 01:19 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
