Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 12 August 2100 at 19:10.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1952"

Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2100 after 5 days on 19 August 2100 at 21:29.

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 1244 / 2197

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1244 of Meeus index or 2197 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 1244 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 48 minutes. It is 35 minutes longer than next lunation 1245 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠294.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠320.8°. 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 perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 10 August 2100 at 16:07 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 August 2100 at 23:00 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 367 181 km

Moon is 367 181 km (228 156 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 637 km (251 430 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 7 August 2100 at 17:51 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 August 2100 at 18:39 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 2 August 2100 at 09:03 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.293°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.334° in the next southern standstill on 15 August 2100 at 09:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 19 August 2100 at 21:29 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
