Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1921" and ∠1892".

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2070 after 15 days on 21 August 2070 at 19:54.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 2 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠40.1°

The true anomaly is ∠40.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠66.1°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 3 August 2070 at 20:19 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 August 2070 at 17:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 373 042 km

The Moon is 373 042 km (231 798 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 491 km (251 339 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 29 July 2070 at 08:38 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 August 2070 at 02:20 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 3 August 2070 at 00:42 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.683°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.601° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 August 2070 at 16:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
