Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 24 June 2074 at 13:38.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1805"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2074 after 13 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 2 July 2074 at 02:22
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 8 July 2074 at 17:05
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 16 July 2074 at 01:11
  • New Moon in Leo ♌ on 24 July 2074 at 03:07

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 921 / 1874

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 921 of Meeus index or 1874 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.56 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠218.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠218.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠250.9°.

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 July 2074 at 14:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 397 170 km

The Moon is 397 170 km (246 790 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 554 km (225 281 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after descending node on 12 June 2074 at 10:42 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 05:18 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠21.016°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-21.006° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 8 July 2074 at 08:12.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
