Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2096 after 5 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 5 July 2096 at 17:02
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 13 July 2096 at 00:05

Lunation 1193 / 2146

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1193 of Meeus index or 2146 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 1193 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1194 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠26.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠47.7°. 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 19:58, this is 12 days after last perigee on 18 June 2096 at 18:27 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 16 July 2096 at 15:28 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 404 980 km

This apogee Moon is 404 980 km (251 643 mi) away from Earth. It is 428 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 729 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 18 June 2096 at 09:30 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 July 2096 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2096 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.330°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.318° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2096 at 06:20 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
