Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 10 July 2042 at 05:38.

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 is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1936"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1936" and ∠1888".

Sturgeon Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2042 after 19 days on 1 August 2042 at 17:33.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 17 July 2042 at 05:52
  • First Quarter in Scorpio ♏ on 25 July 2042 at 05:01

  • Last Quarter in Taurus ♉ on 8 August 2042 at 10:35

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 525 / 1478

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 525 of Meeus index or 1478 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.42 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠57.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠57.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠88.8°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 9 July 2042 at 07:47 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 July 2042 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 370 307 km

The Moon is 370 307 km (230 098 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 290 km (251 214 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 10 July 2042 at 13:42 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 July 2042 at 06:34 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 2 July 2042 at 18:24 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.069°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.092° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 July 2042 at 16:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 17 July 2042 at 05:52 in ♋ Cancer 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.
