Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Lunation 1157 / 2110

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 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:01, this is 12 days after last perigee on 6 August 2093 at 03:50 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 3 September 2093 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 405 778 km

This apogee Moon is 405 778 km (252 139 mi) away from Earth. It is 370 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 931 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 5 August 2093 at 17:27 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 August 2093 at 07:10 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon in northern standstill

At 03:18 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠21.668°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-21.745° in its southern standstill point on 1 September 2093 at 03:48 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 22 August 2093 at 03:53 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
