Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1828"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1828" and ∠1897".

Sturgeon Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2092 after 26 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33.

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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 before apogee

6 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 5 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 392 168 km

Moon is 392 168 km (243 682 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 285 km (251 211 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 16 August 2092 at 14:00 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 August 2092 at 21:39 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 14 August 2092 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.084°. Next 7 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 12 days

After 12 days on 1 September 2092 at 22:14 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
