Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1772"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 26 days on 31 January 2094 at 12:36.

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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 2094. 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 January 2094 at 05:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 432 km

Moon is 404 432 km (251 302 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 139 km (221 916 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 2 January 2094 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 January 2094 at 02:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 1 January 2094 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.474°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.474° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2094 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 16 January 2094 at 19:05 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
