Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 1119 / 2072

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1119 of Meeus index or 2072 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 8 minutes. It is 28 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠310°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠331.5°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 18:12. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 30 June 2090 at 23:26 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 28 July 2090 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 404 895 km

This apogee Moon is 404 895 km (251 590 mi) away from Earth. It is 513 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 814 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 21:11 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 30 July 2090 at 05:38 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 10 July 2090 at 07:05 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.430°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.374° at the point of next northern standstill on 24 July 2090 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 27 July 2090 at 01:19 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.
