Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 15 October 2092 at 10:25.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1772"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1928".

Hunter Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2092 after 23 days on 14 November 2092 at 03:04.

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 1147 / 2100

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 1147 of Meeus index or 2100 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 1147 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 13 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1148 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠312.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠312.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠334°. 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 20 October 2092 at 09:17 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 November 2092 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 543 km

Moon is 404 543 km (251 371 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 684 km (224 119 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 9 October 2092 at 23:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 October 2092 at 08:18 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 20:05 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.498°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.608° in its southern standstill point on 3 November 2092 at 23:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 30 October 2092 at 19:28 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
