Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 5 August 2100 at 23:02.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1919"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2100 after 12 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 1244 / 2197

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is 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°

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

Moon before apogee

9 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 3 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 373 529 km

The Moon is 373 529 km (232 100 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 679 km (229 087 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 17:51 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 20 August 2100 at 18:39 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 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 after northern standstill

5 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 7 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

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 19 August 2100 at 21:29 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.
