Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 27 September 2093 at 23:39.

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1960"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1917".

Hunter Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2093 after 3 days on 4 October 2093 at 18:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 1159 / 2112

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1159 of Meeus index or 2112 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.55 days

Length of current 1159 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1160 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠247.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠247.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.3°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 02:43, this is 15 days after last apogee on 15 September 2093 at 07:53 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 367 262 km

This perigee Moon is 367 262 km (228 206 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 754 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 094 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 29 September 2093 at 05:00 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 October 2093 at 13:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 28 September 2093 at 09:48 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.954°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.080° in the next northern standstill on 11 October 2093 at 17:32 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 4 October 2093 at 18:18 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
