Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 26 July 2092 at 07:31.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1771"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 17 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2092 after 17 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22.

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 1144 / 2097

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1144 of Meeus index or 2097 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 1144 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1145 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠215.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠246.7°. 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 29 July 2092 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 August 2092 at 17:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 769 km

Moon is 404 769 km (251 512 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 986 km (228 035 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 20 July 2092 at 04:19 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 August 2092 at 13:51 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 17 July 2092 at 20:34 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.092°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.082° in the next northern standstill on 31 July 2092 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 3 August 2092 at 09:54 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
