Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2093 after 17 days on 7 August 2093 at 00:23.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1156 / 2109

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1156 of Meeus index or 2109 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 1156 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2093. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1157 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠167.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. 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 before apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 8 July 2093 at 18:17 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 22 July 2093 at 09:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 403 564 km

Moon is 403 564 km (250 763 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 411 km (252 532 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 9 July 2093 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 23 July 2093 at 01:17 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

24 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

12 days after previous South standstill on 8 July 2093 at 09:04 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.641°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.635° in the next northern standstill on 21 July 2093 at 21:21 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 23 July 2093 at 12:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
