Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 24 August 2029 at 01:51.

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 ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1900".

Sturgeon Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2029 after 25 days on 22 September 2029 at 16:29.

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 366 / 1319

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 366 of Meeus index or 1319 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 19 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 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠309.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠309.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠331.3°.

Moon before perigee

15 days after point of perigee on 13 August 2029 at 09:55 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 29 August 2029 at 04:45 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 408 km

The Moon is 405 408 km (251 909 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 066 km (251 696 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 19 August 2029 at 15:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 September 2029 at 01:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 18 August 2029 at 13:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.253°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.127° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 September 2029 at 23:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 8 September 2029 at 10:44 in ♍ Virgo 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.
