Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1872" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2100 after 14 days on 19 August 2100 at 21:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

At 23:02 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1244 of Meeus index or 2197 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.41 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 48 minutes. It is 35 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 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294.6°

The true anomaly is ∠294.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠320.8°.

Moon before apogee

7 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 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 August 2100 at 16:07 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 382 814 km

The Moon is 382 814 km (237 870 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 679 km (229 087 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 24 July 2100 at 11:05 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2100 at 17:51 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 2 August 2100 at 09:03 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.293°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.334° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 August 2100 at 09:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
