Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 25 June 2099 at 12:00.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1861"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1861" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2099 after 1 day on 2 July 2099 at 14:21.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 2 July 2099 at 14:21
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 10 July 2099 at 15:13
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 18 July 2099 at 01:01
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 24 July 2099 at 17:09

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 1230 / 2183

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1230 of Meeus index or 2183 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes. It is 57 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 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠294.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠320.2°.

Moon before perigee

8 days after point of perigee on 23 June 2099 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 July 2099 at 15:42 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 385 117 km

The Moon is 385 117 km (239 301 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 420 km (251 295 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 25 June 2099 at 06:00 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 July 2099 at 23:54 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 18:12 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.409°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.454° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 16 July 2099 at 05:09.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 2 July 2099 at 14:21 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
