Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 5 September 2049 at 02:28.

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 ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1905".

Harvest Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2049 after 4 days on 11 September 2049 at 17:04.

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 614 / 1567

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 614 of Meeus index or 1567 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 614 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 46 minutes. It is 36 minutes longer than next lunation 615 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠210.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠210.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠241.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

13 days after point of apogee on 25 August 2049 at 10:27 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2049 at 00:14 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 364 131 km

Moon is 364 131 km (226 261 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 122 km (224 391 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 4 September 2049 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 September 2049 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 5 September 2049 at 12:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.652°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.544° in the next northern standstill on 18 September 2049 at 07:37 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 11 September 2049 at 17:04 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
