Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 26 August 2054 at 08:56.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1931"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1931" and ∠1900".

Harvest Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2054 after 19 days on 17 September 2054 at 01:41.

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 675 / 1628

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 675 of Meeus index or 1628 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.31 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute 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 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 55 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠352.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠352.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠7.4°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 18 August 2054 at 10:18 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 September 2054 at 14:49 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 371 279 km

The Moon is 371 279 km (230 702 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 587 km (222 194 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 18 August 2054 at 14:57 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 1 September 2054 at 07:18 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon at northern standstill

At 21:36 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠19.122°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-19.139° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 10 September 2054 at 15:24.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 2 September 2054 at 01:18 in ♍ Virgo 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.
