Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 14 October 2088 at 14:39.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1771"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1927".

Hunter Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2088 after 10 days on 30 October 2088 at 03:10.

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 1098 / 2051

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1098 of Meeus index or 2051 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 1098 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 1099 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠96.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠96.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠131.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 5 October 2088 at 14:43 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 October 2088 at 20:06 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 815 km

Moon is 404 815 km (251 540 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 742 km (251 495 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 15 October 2088 at 00:52 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 October 2088 at 10:27 in ♈ Aries.

Moon in southern standstill

At 12:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.845°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2088. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.864° in its northern standstill point on 2 November 2088 at 06:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 30 October 2088 at 03:10 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
