Moonrise and moonset

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

Hunter Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2086 after 12 days on 22 October 2086 at 09:56.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1073 / 2026

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1073 of Meeus index or 2026 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 1073 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 57 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2086. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1074 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠181.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠181.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.3°. 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 7 October 2086 at 14:11 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 October 2086 at 22:00 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 892 km

Moon is 403 892 km (250 967 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 173 km (221 937 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 27 September 2086 at 11:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 October 2086 at 22:52 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 28 September 2086 at 08:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.839°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.722° in the next southern standstill on 13 October 2086 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
