Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 6 September 2076 at 09:46.

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 leaving the last ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1907".

Harvest Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2076 after 1 day on 13 September 2076 at 00:38.

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 948 / 1901

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 948 of Meeus index or 1901 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 948 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2076. It is 21 minutes longer than next lunation 949 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠193.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠219.7°. 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 28 August 2076 at 02:51 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 12 September 2076 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 360 km

Moon is 363 360 km (225 781 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 503 km (222 763 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 6 September 2076 at 23:25 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 19 September 2076 at 11:58 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 8 September 2076 at 07:25 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.585°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.689° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2076 at 02:19 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 13 September 2076 at 00:38 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
