Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 29 July 2100 at 05:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1808"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1808" and ∠1891".

Sturgeon Moon after 17 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2100 after 17 days on 19 August 2100 at 21:29.

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 1243 / 2196

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 29 July 2100 at 04:16 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 August 2100 at 16:07 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 396 479 km

The Moon is 396 479 km (246 361 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 679 km (229 087 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 24 July 2100 at 11:05 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2100 at 17:51 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 at northern standstill

At 09:03 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.293°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.334° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 15 August 2100 at 09:13.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 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.
