Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 14 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1162 / 2115

At 07:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1162 of Meeus index or 2115 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.47 days

29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes is the length of new lunation 1162. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2093. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1163 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠335.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.5°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo. 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 19 December 2093 at 18:42 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 367 132 km

Moon is 367 132 km (228 125 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 323 km (223 894 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 5 December 2093 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 December 2093 at 15:25 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 5 December 2093 at 10:39 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.462°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.474° in the next southern standstill on 19 December 2093 at 08:08 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
