Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 18 September 2049 at 23:03.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Hunter Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2049 after 18 days on 11 October 2049 at 02:53.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 00:05, this is 11 days after last perigee on 10 September 2049 at 00:14 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 7 October 2049 at 21:10 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 405 133 km

This apogee Moon is 405 133 km (251 738 mi) away from Earth. It is 275 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 576 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 17 September 2049 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 October 2049 at 11:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 18 September 2049 at 07:37 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.544°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.422° in the next southern standstill on 2 October 2049 at 17:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 27 September 2049 at 02:05 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
