Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 2 August 2067 at 01:51.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1804"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2067 after 19 days on 24 August 2067 at 16:57.

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 835 / 1788

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 835 of Meeus index or 1788 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 12 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠159.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠159.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠183°.

Moon before perigee

9 days after point of perigee on 26 July 2067 at 17:23 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 August 2067 at 18:29 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 397 260 km

The Moon is 397 260 km (246 846 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 600 km (252 650 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 05:26 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 19 August 2067 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 03:19 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.998°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.875° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 19 August 2067 at 18:29.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 10 August 2067 at 02:36 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.
