Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

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 1126 / 2079

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1126 of Meeus index or 2079 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.71 days

Length of current 1126 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour shorter than next lunation 1127 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠102°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠102°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠137.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

14 days after point of perigee on 9 January 2091 at 22:29 in ♍ Virgo. 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 25 January 2091 at 14:57 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 119 km

Moon is 405 119 km (251 729 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 798 km (251 530 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 23 January 2091 at 02:24 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 February 2091 at 23:52 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 17 January 2091 at 18:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.589°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.537° in the next northern standstill on 1 February 2091 at 06:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 4 February 2091 at 04:46 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
