Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 7 December 2094 at 19:50.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1910"

Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1948".

Cold Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2094 after 12 days on 21 December 2094 at 19:56.

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 1174 / 2127

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1174 of Meeus index or 2127 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 1174 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes longer than next lunation 1175 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 4 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠287.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠287.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠317.1°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 30 November 2094 at 11:27 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 December 2094 at 11:23 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 362 km

Moon is 375 362 km (233 239 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 943 km (229 872 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 8 December 2094 at 17:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 December 2094 at 16:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 16:27 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.130°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2094. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.122° in its northern standstill point on 22 December 2094 at 16:45 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 21 December 2094 at 19:56 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
