Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 17 October 2094 at 02:45.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1958"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1929".

Hunter Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2094 after 1 day on 23 October 2094 at 17:47.

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 1172 / 2125

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1172 of Meeus index or 2125 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.67 days

Length of current 1172 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 58 minutes. It is 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1173 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠216.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠216.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠250.4°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 21 October 2094 at 18:48 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 November 2094 at 15:27 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 366 176 km

Moon is 366 176 km (227 531 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 997 km (251 653 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 15 October 2094 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 October 2094 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 16 October 2094 at 04:01 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.875°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.975° in the next northern standstill on 28 October 2094 at 21:45 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 23 October 2094 at 17:47 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
