Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1891".

Sturgeon Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2062 after 15 days on 20 August 2062 at 03:55.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 773 / 1726

At 17:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 773 of Meeus index or 1726 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.28 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 48 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 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 5 hours and 57 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358.8°

The true anomaly is ∠358.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠14°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 04:41. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 20 July 2062 at 10:49 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 16 August 2062 at 18:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 358 393 km

This perigee Moon is 358 393 km (222 695 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 115 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 963 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 26 July 2062 at 00:55 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2062 at 17:38 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 2 August 2062 at 02:58 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.542°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.592° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 August 2062 at 06:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
