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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2097 after 15 days on 24 July 2097 at 09:54.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 9 July 2097 at 08:58
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 16 July 2097 at 06:10

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 1205 / 2158

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1205 of Meeus index or 2158 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.28 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2097. It is 18 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 6 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠355.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠10°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 18:43. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 24 June 2097 at 09:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 21 July 2097 at 14:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 840 km

This perigee Moon is 357 840 km (222 351 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 668 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 516 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 4 July 2097 at 19:44 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 July 2097 at 10:55 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 15:01 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠27.459°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-27.475° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 22 July 2097 at 05:45.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 9 July 2097 at 08:58 in ♋ Cancer 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.
