Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1770"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1912".

Harvest Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2092 after 23 days on 15 October 2092 at 10:25.

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 1146 / 2099

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1146 of Meeus index or 2099 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 1146 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. It is 48 minutes longer than next lunation 1147 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠282.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠282.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠312.2°. 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

13 days after point of perigee on 8 September 2092 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 September 2092 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 010 km

Moon is 405 010 km (251 662 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 407 km (251 287 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 12 September 2092 at 21:06 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 27 September 2092 at 04:29 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

21 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

11 days after previous South standstill on 10 September 2092 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.164°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.251° in the next northern standstill on 24 September 2092 at 12:04 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 1 October 2092 at 09:15 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
