Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1889".

Sturgeon Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2074 after 14 days on 7 August 2074 at 02:06.

Upcoming main Moon phases

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

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°

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

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 August 2074 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 395 177 km

The Moon is 395 177 km (245 552 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 536 km (228 376 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after descending node on 9 July 2074 at 19:46 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 24 July 2074 at 05:30 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

26 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 after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 22 July 2074 at 12:38 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.003°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.001° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 August 2074 at 17:04 in ♑ Capricorn.

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.
