Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 8 September 2029 at 10:44.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1906".

Harvest Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2029 after 12 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 367 / 1320

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 367 of Meeus index or 1320 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.35 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2029. It is 40 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠331.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠331.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠348.5°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 04:27. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 29 August 2029 at 04:45 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 25 September 2029 at 19:40 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 361 349 km

This perigee Moon is 361 349 km (224 532 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 159 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 007 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 3 September 2029 at 01:43 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 September 2029 at 16:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 1 September 2029 at 23:36 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.127°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.021° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 September 2029 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 22 September 2029 at 16:29 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
