Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 22 July 2030 at 08:07.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1787"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1787" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2030 after 15 days on 13 August 2030 at 10:44.

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 377 / 1330

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 377 of Meeus index or 1330 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.57 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 52 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠213.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠213.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠244.5°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 25 July 2030 at 04:55 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 9 August 2030 at 22:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 401 036 km

The Moon is 401 036 km (249 192 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 742 km (227 883 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 26 July 2030 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 August 2030 at 19:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

15 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 after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 26 July 2030 at 10:14 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.659°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.572° at the point of next southern standstill on 9 August 2030 at 01:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 30 July 2030 at 11:11 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.
