Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 8 July 2055 at 22:11.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1812"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1812" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2055 after 27 days on 7 August 2055 at 10:57.

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 686 / 1639

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 686 of Meeus index or 1639 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 5 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 3 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠288.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠288.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠315.9°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 30 June 2055 at 11:09 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 July 2055 at 07:49 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 395 458 km

The Moon is 395 458 km (245 726 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 416 km (251 292 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 18:14 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 25 July 2055 at 00:16 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 8 July 2055 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.424°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.410° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 July 2055 at 22:16 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 24 July 2055 at 09:48 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.
