Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 3 July 2063 at 02:01.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1870"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1870" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2063 after 4 days on 10 July 2063 at 13:48.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 10 July 2063 at 13:48
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 18 July 2063 at 18:05

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 785 / 1738

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 785 of Meeus index or 1738 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.31 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes. It is 8 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 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 ∠325.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠325.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠343.4°.

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 28 June 2063 at 13:31 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 July 2063 at 06:53 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 383 274 km

The Moon is 383 274 km (238 155 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 517 km (251 977 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 30 June 2063 at 13:32 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 14 July 2063 at 10:44 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 25 June 2063 at 20:12 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.102°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.119° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 July 2063 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 10 July 2063 at 13:48 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
