Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1846"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1846" and ∠1945".

Snow Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2090 after 7 days on 14 February 2090 at 13:39.

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 1114 / 2067

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1114 of Meeus index or 2067 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.8 days

Length of current 1114 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 12 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2090. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 1115 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠163.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠163.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠188.4°. 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

6 days after point of apogee on 1 February 2090 at 09:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2090 at 17:13 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 388 373 km

Moon is 388 373 km (241 324 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 621 km (221 594 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 3 February 2090 at 19:04 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 February 2090 at 19:19 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 27 January 2090 at 04:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.339°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.250° in the next northern standstill on 10 February 2090 at 19:04 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 14 February 2090 at 13:39 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
