Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 27 July 2090 at 01:19.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2090 after 10 days on 10 August 2090 at 06:51.

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 1120 / 2073

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1120 of Meeus index or 2073 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2090. It is 24 minutes shorter 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 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠331.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠331.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠348.5°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 28 July 2090 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 August 2090 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 409 km

The Moon is 363 409 km (225 812 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 821 km (252 165 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 05:38 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 13 August 2090 at 01:17 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 05:38 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 24 July 2090 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.374°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.326° at the point of next southern standstill on 6 August 2090 at 13:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 10 August 2090 at 06:51 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.
