Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 12 January 2093 at 17:43.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1855"

Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1855" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2093 after 25 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18.

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 1150 / 2103

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 10 January 2093 at 05:43 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 January 2093 at 18:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 326 km

Moon is 386 326 km (240 052 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 956 km (223 666 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 13 January 2093 at 16:59 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 January 2093 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 11 January 2093 at 17:53 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.841°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.833° in the next southern standstill on 25 January 2093 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 27 January 2093 at 03:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
