Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 24 July 2038 at 05:40.

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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1778"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1889".

Sturgeon Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2038 after 19 days on 14 August 2038 at 22:57.

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 476 / 1429

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 476 of Meeus index or 1429 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 33 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠259.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠259.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠293.3°.

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2038 at 07:19 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 5 August 2038 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 108 km

The Moon is 403 108 km (250 480 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 833 km (229 182 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 15 July 2038 at 11:58 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 July 2038 at 20:50 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 15 July 2038 at 15:12 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.036°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.049° at the point of next northern standstill on 30 July 2038 at 00:20 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 1 August 2038 at 00:40 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.
