Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1908"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1908" and ∠1892".

It is Sturgeon Moon

The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2074.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

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

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠250.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠250.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠286°.

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 3 August 2074 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 August 2074 at 07:04 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 375 639 km

The Moon is 375 639 km (233 411 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 246 km (251 187 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 4 August 2074 at 17:04 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.001°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.021° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 August 2074 at 20:33 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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