Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 18 July 2099 at 01:01.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♎ Libra

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1889".

Sturgeon Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2099 after 9 days on 1 August 2099 at 02:59.

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 1231 / 2184

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1231 of Meeus index or 2184 from Brown series.

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°

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

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 20 July 2099 at 12:45 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 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 August 2099 at 08:15 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 407 km

The Moon is 363 407 km (225 811 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 336 km (251 864 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 07:44 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 5 August 2099 at 03:00 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

6 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 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.504° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 July 2099 at 23:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 1 August 2099 at 02:59 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
