Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 10 August 2090 at 06:51.

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 is entering ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2090 after 28 days on 8 September 2090 at 22:44.

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 1120 / 2073

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1120 of Meeus index or 2073 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 1120 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2090. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 1121 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠331.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. 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 apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 28 July 2090 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo. 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 13 August 2090 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 414 km

Moon is 404 414 km (251 291 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 821 km (252 165 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 30 July 2090 at 05:38 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 August 2090 at 01:17 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 6 August 2090 at 13:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.326°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.266° in the next northern standstill on 21 August 2090 at 05:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 25 August 2090 at 08:58 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
