Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 30 July 2091 at 12:01.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1892".

Buck Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2091 after 22 days on 29 August 2091 at 00:39.

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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 07:42, this is 14 days after last perigee on 23 July 2091 at 04:02 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 18 August 2091 at 06:08 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 324 km

This apogee Moon is 404 324 km (251 235 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 084 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 385 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 1 August 2091 at 10:40 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 August 2091 at 17:38 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

18 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

9 days after previous South standstill on 28 July 2091 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.921°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.890° in the next northern standstill on 11 August 2091 at 15:21 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 15 August 2091 at 00:22 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
