Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 July 2091 at 14:15.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1908"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1908" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2091 after 12 days on 30 July 2091 at 12:01.

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 1132 / 2085

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1132 of Meeus index or 2085 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 1132 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 6 minutes. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1133 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠280.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310.2°. 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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 9 July 2091 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2091 at 04:02 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 620 km

Moon is 375 620 km (233 399 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 671 km (229 703 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 5 July 2091 at 03:56 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 July 2091 at 10:20 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 15 July 2091 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.955°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.921° in the next southern standstill on 28 July 2091 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 30 July 2091 at 12:01 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
