Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1895".

Sturgeon Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2099 after 14 days on 30 August 2099 at 17:56.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1232 / 2185

At 08:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1232 of Meeus index or 2185 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.33 days

29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 1232. It is 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1233 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.4°. 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

11 days after point of apogee on 5 August 2099 at 08:15 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 August 2099 at 14:24 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 366 013 km

Moon is 366 013 km (227 430 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 644 km (223 472 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 5 August 2099 at 03:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 August 2099 at 13:42 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 12 August 2099 at 14:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.579°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.632° in the next southern standstill on 25 August 2099 at 05:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
