Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 8 September 2067 at 18:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1911"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1908".

Harvest Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2067 after 7 days on 23 September 2067 at 00:54.

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 837 / 1790

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 837 of Meeus index or 1790 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes. It is 33 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠207.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠207.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠237.7°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 5 September 2067 at 23:25 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 September 2067 at 11:31 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 132 km

The Moon is 375 132 km (233 096 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 582 km (224 055 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 19:19 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 28 September 2067 at 09:08 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 19:19 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before southern standstill

14 days since the previous standstill on 1 September 2067 at 09:55 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.778°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-22.627° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 September 2067 at 01:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 23 September 2067 at 00:54 in ♈ Aries 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.
