Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 13 July 2037 at 02:32.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1963"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2037 after 11 days on 27 July 2037 at 04:15.

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 464 / 1417

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 464 of Meeus index or 1417 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 10 minutes. It is 26 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 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠318.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠318.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠338.4°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 16:48. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 3 July 2037 at 19:50 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 31 July 2037 at 12:33 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 330 km

This perigee Moon is 364 330 km (226 384 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 822 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 026 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 13 July 2037 at 15:35 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 July 2037 at 17:23 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 12 July 2037 at 10:57 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.362°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.355° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 July 2037 at 08:44 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 27 July 2037 at 04:15 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
