Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 18 July 2086 at 21:45.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1851"

Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2086 after 2 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24.

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 1070 / 2023

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 before apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2086 at 04:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 July 2086 at 01:59 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 387 186 km

The Moon is 387 186 km (240 586 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 494 km (226 486 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 22 July 2086 at 14:50 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 August 2086 at 08:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 01:34 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-22.388°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠22.322° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 4 August 2086 at 20:25.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 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.
