Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1893".

It is Sturgeon Moon

The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2014.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

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

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. It is 30 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 47 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠169.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠169.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠192.1°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 17:43. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 28 July 2014 at 03:27 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 24 August 2014 at 06:09 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 356 897 km

This perigee Moon is 356 897 km (221 766 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2014. It is 5 611 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 472 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 2 August 2014 at 11:26 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 August 2014 at 00:18 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 7 August 2014 at 04:26 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.827°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.750° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 August 2014 at 22:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
