Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 19 August 2094 at 06:26.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1911"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1897".

Sturgeon Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2094 after 4 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 1170 / 2123

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 12 August 2094 at 14:04 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2094 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 058 km

Moon is 375 058 km (233 050 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 868 km (221 747 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 August 2094 at 04:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2094 at 02:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.329°. Next day 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.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 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.
