Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 10 September 2060 at 09:44.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1961"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1907".

Harvest Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2060 after 28 days on 9 October 2060 at 18:41.

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 750 / 1703

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 750 of Meeus index or 1703 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 2 hours and 35 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠119.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠119.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠149.6°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 31 August 2060 at 02:25 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 September 2060 at 02:40 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 574 km

The Moon is 365 574 km (227 157 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 154 km (224 411 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 30 August 2060 at 17:20 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 September 2060 at 04:20 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 5 September 2060 at 02:26 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.952°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.029° at the point of next northern standstill on 17 September 2060 at 19:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 24 September 2060 at 15:53 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.
