Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 24 July 2097 at 09:54.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1873"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1873" and ∠1890".

Buck Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2097 after 24 days on 22 August 2097 at 23:52.

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 1206 / 2159

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 1206 of Meeus index or 2159 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.29 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 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 5 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 27 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠10°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠26.5°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 21 July 2097 at 14:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 August 2097 at 01:35 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 382 666 km

The Moon is 382 666 km (237 778 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 915 km (224 262 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 17 July 2097 at 10:55 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 July 2097 at 21:54 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 22 July 2097 at 05:45 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.475°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.559° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 August 2097 at 00:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 7 August 2097 at 16:00 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.
