Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 10 July 2086 at 22:02.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2086 after 8 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 18 July 2086 at 21:45
  • Full Moon in Aquarius ♒ on 26 July 2086 at 09:24
  • Last Quarter in Taurus ♉ on 2 August 2086 at 01:01
  • New Moon in Leo ♌ on 9 August 2086 at 10:38

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 1070 / 2023

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1070 of Meeus index or 2023 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.53 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 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 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠95.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠95.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠129.5°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 04:25. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 2 July 2086 at 04:43 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next perigee on 29 July 2086 at 01:59 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 404 547 km

This apogee Moon is 404 547 km (251 374 mi) away from Earth. It is 861 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 162 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 8 July 2086 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 July 2086 at 14:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 8 July 2086 at 14:01 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.447°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.388° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 July 2086 at 01:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
