Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 31 July 2093 at 09:13.

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 ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2093 after 1 day on 7 August 2093 at 00:23.

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 1157 / 2110

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 1157 of Meeus index or 2110 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1157 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 18 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer than next lunation 1158 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠190.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠215.5°. 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 perigee

14 days after point of apogee on 22 July 2093 at 09:07 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2093 at 03:50 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 302 km

Moon is 363 302 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 354 km (222 671 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 17:27 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 19 August 2093 at 07:10 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 4 August 2093 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.651°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.668° in the next northern standstill on 18 August 2093 at 03:18 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 7 August 2093 at 00:23 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
