Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 3 October 2064 at 15:50.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1902"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1902" and ∠1920".

Hunter Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2064 after 19 days on 25 October 2064 at 07:06.

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 800 / 1753

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 800 of Meeus index or 1753 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.35 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 23 minutes. It is 48 minutes 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 21 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠344°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠344°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠359.5°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 27 September 2064 at 00:14 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 October 2064 at 11:14 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 376 831 km

The Moon is 376 831 km (234 152 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 866 km (221 746 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after ascending node on 21 September 2064 at 13:35 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 October 2064 at 02:42 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 2 October 2064 at 05:10 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.159°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.067° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 October 2064 at 19:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 10 October 2064 at 10:34 in ♎ Libra 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.
