Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1776"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1948".

Cold Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 27 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.

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 1161 / 2114

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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

13 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 2 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 403 697 km

Moon is 403 697 km (250 846 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 269 km (251 822 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 20:16 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 19 December 2093 at 15:25 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 20:16 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon in northern standstill

At 10:39 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.462°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2093. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.474° in its southern standstill point on 19 December 2093 at 08:08 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 18 December 2093 at 07:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
