Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 2 July 2099 at 14:21.

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 ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon before 5 days

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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 15:42. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 23 June 2099 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 20 July 2099 at 12:45 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 420 km

This apogee Moon is 404 420 km (251 295 mi) away from Earth. It is 988 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 289 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 23:54 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 22 July 2099 at 07:44 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 23:54 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 1 July 2099 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.409°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.454° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 July 2099 at 05:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 18 July 2099 at 01:01 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.
