Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 3 August 2094 at 07:58.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1856" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 20 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2094 after 20 days on 26 August 2094 at 00:51.

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 1169 / 2122

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1169 of Meeus index or 2122 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 1169 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 1 minute. It is 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 1170 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠141.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠141.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 28 July 2094 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 August 2094 at 14:04 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 386 206 km

Moon is 386 206 km (239 977 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 544 km (252 615 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 25 July 2094 at 20:41 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 7 August 2094 at 16:45 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 26 July 2094 at 04:07 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.317°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.329° in the next northern standstill on 8 August 2094 at 02:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 11 August 2094 at 04:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
