Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 25 November 2093 at 13:54.

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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1837"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1946".

Cold Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 1 day on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.

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 1161 / 2114

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 1161 of Meeus index or 2114 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 1161 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 50 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than next lunation 1162 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠314.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠314.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠335.6°. 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

9 days after point of perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 390 262 km

Moon is 390 262 km (242 498 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 269 km (251 822 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 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 5 December 2093 at 20:16 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

9 days after previous South standstill on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.406°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.462° in the next northern standstill on 5 December 2093 at 10:39 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 2 December 2093 at 22:24 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
