Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 14 July 2100 at 14:43.

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 ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1944"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1944" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2100 after 2 days on 21 July 2100 at 10:12.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 21 July 2100 at 10:12
  • Last Quarter in Taurus ♉ on 29 July 2100 at 05:09
  • New Moon in Leo ♌ on 5 August 2100 at 23:02
  • First Quarter in Scorpio ♏ on 12 August 2100 at 19:10

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 1243 / 2196

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 1243 of Meeus index or 2196 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 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 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠261°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠261°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠294.6°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 16 July 2100 at 14:15 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 July 2100 at 04:16 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 625 km

The Moon is 368 625 km (229 053 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 176 km (251 143 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after descending node on 11 July 2100 at 12:42 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 July 2100 at 11:05 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

21 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 before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 6 July 2100 at 01:14 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.198°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-28.246° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 July 2100 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 21 July 2100 at 10:12 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
