Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1899".

Harvest Moon after 21 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2092 after 21 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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:58, this is 12 days after last perigee on 13 August 2092 at 17:47 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 8 September 2092 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 404 285 km

This apogee Moon is 404 285 km (251 211 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2092. It is 1 123 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 234 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 August 2092 at 21:39 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 14 August 2092 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.084°. Next 2 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 7 days

After 7 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.
