Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 3 February 2093 at 07:27.

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 passing about ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1774"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1946".

Snow Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2093 after 6 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18.

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 1151 / 2104

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 before apogee

10 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 115 km

Moon is 404 115 km (251 105 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 386 km (251 895 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 February 2093 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2093 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.833°. Next 2 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 6 days

After 6 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.
