Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 21 August 2091 at 17:43.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1934"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1898".

Sturgeon Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2091 after 5 days on 29 August 2091 at 00:39.

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 1133 / 2086

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1133 of Meeus index or 2086 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 1133 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1134 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.3°. 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

5 days after point of perigee on 18 August 2091 at 06:08 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 September 2091 at 01:49 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 370 616 km

Moon is 370 616 km (230 290 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 142 km (251 744 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 15 August 2091 at 17:38 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 August 2091 at 18:22 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 11 August 2091 at 15:21 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.890°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.873° in the next southern standstill on 24 August 2091 at 11:30 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 29 August 2091 at 00:39 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
