Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 24 December 2093 at 23:25.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1808"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1808" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 2 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.

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 1162 / 2115

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 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 before apogee

10 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 4 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 396 538 km

Moon is 396 538 km (246 397 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 096 km (252 336 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 January 2094 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

24 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

11 days after previous South standstill on 19 December 2093 at 08:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.474°. Next 2 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.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 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.
