Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1937"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 8 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 1162 / 2115

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1162 of Meeus index or 2115 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 1162 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes. 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 19 December 2093 at 18:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 370 080 km

Moon is 370 080 km (229 957 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 096 km (252 336 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 19 December 2093 at 15:25 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 January 2094 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

18 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

5 days after previous South standstill on 19 December 2093 at 08:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.474°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.474° in the next northern standstill on 1 January 2094 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
