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.

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

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 21 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 before apogee

7 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 October 2094 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 390 446 km

Moon is 390 446 km (242 612 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 919 km (252 226 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 20:19 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 18 September 2094 at 21:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.617°. Next day 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 9 days

After 9 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.
