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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1899"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1887".

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 1069 / 2022

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 1069 of Meeus index or 2022 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠62.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠62.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠95.5°.

Moon after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 2 July 2086 at 04:43 in ♓ Pisces. 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 17 July 2086 at 04:25 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 377 437 km

The Moon is 377 437 km (234 528 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 547 km (251 374 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 05:01 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 22 July 2086 at 14:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 14:01 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.447°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.388° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 23 July 2086 at 01:34.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 10 July 2086 at 22:02 in ♋ Cancer 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.
