Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 28 July 2064 at 07:40.

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 ♓ Pisces

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1771"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1891".

Buck Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2064 after 25 days on 26 August 2064 at 21:35.

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 798 / 1751

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 798 of Meeus index or 1751 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 3 minutes. It is 41 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 41 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠301.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠301.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠325.7°.

Moon before perigee

14 days after point of perigee on 18 July 2064 at 08:38 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 August 2064 at 22:45 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 790 km

The Moon is 404 790 km (251 525 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 778 km (251 517 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 29 July 2064 at 02:05 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 August 2064 at 09:26 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 25 July 2064 at 00:49 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.393°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.403° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 August 2064 at 13:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 12 August 2064 at 17:49 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.
