Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 21 July 2100 at 10:12.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1813"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1813" and ∠1889".

Buck Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2100 after 26 days on 19 August 2100 at 21:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 1243 / 2196

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1243 of Meeus index or 2196 from Brown series.

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 before perigee

7 days 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 4 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 395 305 km

The Moon is 395 305 km (245 631 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 176 km (251 143 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 11:05 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 7 August 2100 at 17:51 in ♍ Virgo.

New draconic month

At 11:05 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 19 July 2100 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.246°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.293° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 August 2100 at 09:03 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 5 August 2100 at 23:02 in ♌ Leo 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.
