Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 12 August 2045 at 17:39.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2045 after 14 days on 27 August 2045 at 14:08.

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 564 / 1517

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 564 of Meeus index or 1517 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.33 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 48 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 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 4 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠0.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠0.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠16.2°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 12 August 2045 at 16:40 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 August 2045 at 04:13 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 750 km

The Moon is 363 750 km (226 024 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 140 km (252 364 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 12 August 2045 at 21:20 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 August 2045 at 14:00 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 8 August 2045 at 22:31 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.798°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.803° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 August 2045 at 15:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 27 August 2045 at 14:08 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.
