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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1802"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1802" and ∠1888".

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 1230 / 2183

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 8 July 2099 at 15:42 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 July 2099 at 12:45 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 693 km

The Moon is 397 693 km (247 115 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 045 km (226 207 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 8 July 2099 at 23:54 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 July 2099 at 07:44 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

10 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 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.454° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 July 2099 at 05:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 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.
