Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days 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 in ♓ Pisces

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2090 after 26 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 17 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 08:23, this is 15 days after last perigee on 28 July 2090 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2090 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 405 821 km

This apogee Moon is 405 821 km (252 165 mi) away from Earth. It is 413 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 888 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 01:17 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 26 August 2090 at 13:58 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 6 August 2090 at 13:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.326°. Next 7 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 11 days

After 11 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.
