Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 18 August 2090 at 11:05.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1958"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1898".

Harvest Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2090 after 15 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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 13 August 2090 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2090 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 366 125 km

Moon is 366 125 km (227 500 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 032 km (222 471 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 13 August 2090 at 01:17 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 August 2090 at 13:58 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 21 August 2090 at 05:49 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.266°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.232° in the next southern standstill on 2 September 2090 at 19:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
