Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 29 July 2083 at 01:00.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1816"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1816" and ∠1891".

Buck Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 24 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.

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 1033 / 1986

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1033 of Meeus index or 1986 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.54 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 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 7 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 56 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠232°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠232°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠266.6°.

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 26 July 2083 at 06:24 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 394 622 km

The Moon is 394 622 km (245 207 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 508 km (251 350 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 29 July 2083 at 04:55 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 August 2083 at 13:29 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 26 July 2083 at 00:18 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.954°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.955° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 13 August 2083 at 12:45 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
