Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 25 September 2058 at 10:14.

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1915".

Hunter Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 3 days on 2 October 2058 at 01:36.

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 726 / 1679

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 726 of Meeus index or 1679 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 726 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 43 minutes longer than next lunation 727 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠223°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠223°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠257.8°. 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

14 days after point of apogee on 13 September 2058 at 22:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 September 2058 at 18:56 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 345 km

Moon is 363 345 km (225 772 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 283 km (225 734 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 23 September 2058 at 15:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 October 2058 at 07:21 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2058 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.727°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.830° in the next northern standstill on 8 October 2058 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 2 October 2058 at 01:36 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
