Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1894".

Harvest Moon after 22 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2096 after 22 days on 2 September 2096 at 15:36.

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 1194 / 2147

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1194 of Meeus index or 2147 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 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 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠47.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠47.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠76.1°.

Moon before apogee

13 days after point of apogee on 28 July 2096 at 13:17 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 August 2096 at 00:11 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 363 298 km

The Moon is 363 298 km (225 743 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 693 km (229 717 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 17:28 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 25 August 2096 at 06:52 in ♏ Scorpio.

New draconic month

At 17:28 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 1 August 2096 at 13:13 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.382°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.461° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 August 2096 at 16:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 18 August 2096 at 03:00 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.
