Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 5 August 2083 at 12:38.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1804"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1893".

Sturgeon Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 15 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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini. 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 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 219 km

The Moon is 397 219 km (246 820 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 256 km (229 445 mi).

Moon before descending node

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

Draconic month

13 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 after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.955°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.925° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 August 2083 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 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.
