Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 August 2094 at 04:36.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2094 after 13 days on 26 August 2094 at 00:51.

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 1170 / 2123

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1170 of Meeus index or 2123 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 1170 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 55 minutes. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1171 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠167.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.4°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 14:04, this is 14 days after last perigee on 28 July 2094 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2094 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 544 km

This apogee Moon is 406 544 km (252 615 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2094. It is 1 136 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 165 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 7 August 2094 at 16:45 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 August 2094 at 04:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

4 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

4 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2094 at 02:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.329°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.409° in the next southern standstill on 22 August 2094 at 13:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 26 August 2094 at 00:51 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
