Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 14 February 2090 at 13:39.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1964"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1942".

Snow Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2090 after 27 days on 15 March 2090 at 23:42.

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 1114 / 2067

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 14 February 2090 at 17:13 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 February 2090 at 10:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 931 km

Moon is 364 931 km (226 758 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 559 km (252 624 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 19:19 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 2 March 2090 at 23:32 in ♓ Pisces.

New draconic month

At 19:19 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 10 February 2090 at 19:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.250°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.192° in the next southern standstill on 23 February 2090 at 11:00 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 1 March 2090 at 09:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
