Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2093 after 14 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1151 / 2104

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1151 of Meeus index or 2104 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 1151 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 1152 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠22.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠22.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠43.9°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 25 January 2093 at 18:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 371 999 km

Moon is 371 999 km (231 149 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 386 km (251 895 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 26 January 2093 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 February 2093 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2093 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.833°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.836° in the next northern standstill on 8 February 2093 at 00:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
