Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 26 August 2064 at 21:35.

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 ∠17° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1901".

Sturgeon Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2064 after 26 days on 25 September 2064 at 13:38.

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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 14:46. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 14 August 2064 at 20:26 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 12 September 2064 at 00:51 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 759 km

This apogee Moon is 405 759 km (252 127 mi) away from Earth. It is 351 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 950 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 25 August 2064 at 09:06 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 September 2064 at 19:25 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

5 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

9 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 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.341° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 September 2064 at 22:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 11 September 2064 at 02:11 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.
