Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 4 January 2093 at 13:22.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2093 after 2 days on 12 January 2093 at 17:43.

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 1150 / 2103

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1150 of Meeus index or 2103 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 1150 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1151 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠6.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠22.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 05:43, this is 12 days after last perigee on 28 December 2092 at 07:30 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 25 January 2093 at 18:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 189 km

This apogee Moon is 406 189 km (252 394 mi) away from Earth. It is 781 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 520 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 30 December 2092 at 11:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 January 2093 at 16:59 in ♋ Cancer.

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 before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 28 December 2092 at 21:41 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.841°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.841° in the next northern standstill on 11 January 2093 at 17:53 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 12 January 2093 at 17:43 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
