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.

Harvest Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2094 after 1 day on 24 September 2094 at 08:33.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1171 / 2124

The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1171 of Meeus index or 2124 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.68 days

Length of current 1171 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2094. It is 15 minutes longer than next lunation 1172 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠190.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠216.5°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:57, this is 14 days after last apogee on 8 September 2094 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 5 October 2094 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 358 122 km

This perigee Moon is 358 122 km (222 527 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 386 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 234 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 18 September 2094 at 08:20 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 September 2094 at 20:19 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 18 September 2094 at 21:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.617°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.728° in the next northern standstill on 1 October 2094 at 13:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 24 September 2094 at 08:33 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
