Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon is entering ♌ Leo

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1935" and ∠1888".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2099 after 13 days on 1 August 2099 at 02:59.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

Synodic month length 29.33 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2099. It is 2 minutes shorter 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 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠320.2°

The true anomaly is ∠320.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠339.4°.

Moon before apogee

9 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 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 July 2099 at 12:45 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 370 527 km

The Moon is 370 527 km (230 235 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 045 km (226 207 mi).

Moon before descending node

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

Draconic month

9 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 after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 16 July 2099 at 05:09 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.454°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.504° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 July 2099 at 23:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
