Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 10 August 2092 at 15:18.

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 ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1957"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1895".

Sturgeon Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2092 after 2 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 1145 / 2098

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1145 of Meeus index or 2098 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 1145 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1146 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 24 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 45 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠246.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠246.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠282.2°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 13 August 2092 at 17:47 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 August 2092 at 18:58 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 366 353 km

Moon is 366 353 km (227 641 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 285 km (251 211 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 3 August 2092 at 13:51 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 August 2092 at 14:00 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 05:05 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-20.084°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠20.103° in its northern standstill point on 28 August 2092 at 04:01 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
