Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 25 July 2029 at 13:36.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1775"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1890".

Buck Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2029 after 24 days on 24 August 2029 at 01:51.

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 365 / 1318

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 365 of Meeus index or 1318 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.42 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 30 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠279.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠279.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠309.2°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 18 July 2029 at 11:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 1 August 2029 at 10:42 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 403 801 km

The Moon is 403 801 km (250 910 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 310 km (251 227 mi).

Moon after ascending node

7 days after ascending node on 23 July 2029 at 11:12 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 August 2029 at 20:21 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 22 July 2029 at 07:07 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.380°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.323° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 August 2029 at 14:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 10 August 2029 at 01:56 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.
