Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 19 August 2064 at 08:55.

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1832"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1832" and ∠1898".

Sturgeon Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2064 after 2 days on 26 August 2064 at 21:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 799 / 1752

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 799 of Meeus index or 1752 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.35 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 minute shorter 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 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠325.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠325.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠344°.

Moon before perigee

9 days after point of perigee on 14 August 2064 at 20:26 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 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 August 2064 at 14:46 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 391 235 km

The Moon is 391 235 km (243 102 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 759 km (252 127 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 12 August 2064 at 09:26 in ♌ Leo. 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 25 August 2064 at 09:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 21 August 2064 at 06:25 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.397°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.341° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 September 2064 at 22:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 26 August 2064 at 21:35 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
