Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1920"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1895".

Sturgeon Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2092 after 1 day on 17 August 2092 at 09:22.

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 1145 / 2098

The Moon is 14 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

2 days 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 9 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 373 316 km

Moon is 373 316 km (231 968 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 285 km (251 211 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 14:00 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 30 August 2092 at 21:39 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 14 August 2092 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.084°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.103° in the next northern standstill on 28 August 2092 at 04:01 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
