Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 21 July 2005 at 11:00.

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 in ♓ Pisces

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1938"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2005 after 25 days on 19 August 2005 at 17:53.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 68 / 1021

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 68 of Meeus index or 1021 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.63 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 2 minutes. It is 39 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠158.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠158.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠181.9°.

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 21 July 2005 at 19:44 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 August 2005 at 21:49 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 837 km

The Moon is 369 837 km (229 806 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 631 km (252 669 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 14 July 2005 at 06:35 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 July 2005 at 17:58 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 19 July 2005 at 17:52 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.265°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.311° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 August 2005 at 18:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 5 August 2005 at 03:05 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
