Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 24 September 2094 at 08:33.

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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1907"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1907" and ∠1915".

Harvest Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2094 after 26 days on 23 October 2094 at 17:47.

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 1171 / 2124

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 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 23 September 2094 at 11:57 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 October 2094 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 375 946 km

Moon is 375 946 km (233 602 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 919 km (252 226 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 September 2094 at 20:19 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 18 September 2094 at 21:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.617°. Next 4 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 12 days

After 12 days on 9 October 2094 at 12:44 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
