Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 21 September 2074 at 01:28.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1914".

Hunter Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2074 after 9 days on 5 October 2074 at 02:55.

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 924 / 1877

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 924 of Meeus index or 1877 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 924 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 43 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2074. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 925 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠314.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠314.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠335.8°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 23 September 2074 at 22:46 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 October 2074 at 20:38 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 304 km

Moon is 363 304 km (225 747 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 331 km (251 861 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 16 September 2074 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 September 2074 at 14:52 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 15 September 2074 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.157°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.263° in the next southern standstill on 28 September 2074 at 04:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 5 October 2074 at 02:55 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
