Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 2 August 2086 at 01:01.

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 ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1910"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1891".

Sturgeon Moon after 20 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2086 after 20 days on 24 August 2086 at 17:25.

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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1070 of Meeus index or 2023 from Brown series.

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 after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 29 July 2086 at 01:59 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 August 2086 at 21:28 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 375 370 km

The Moon is 375 370 km (233 244 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 496 km (251 964 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 08:12 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 18 August 2086 at 19:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon at northern standstill

At 20:25 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.322°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.198° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 19 August 2086 at 11:08.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 9 August 2086 at 10:38 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.
