Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 24 July 2099 at 17:09.

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 passing about ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1872"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1872" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2099 after 3 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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 before perigee

7 days 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 7 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 382 894 km

The Moon is 382 894 km (237 919 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 336 km (251 864 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 22 July 2099 at 07:44 in ♍ Virgo. 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 5 August 2099 at 03:00 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 23:58 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.504°. Over the next 15 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.579° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 12 August 2099 at 14:22.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 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.
