Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 January 2095 at 09:33.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1940"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2095 after 13 days on 20 January 2095 at 12:48.

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 1175 / 2128

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1175 of Meeus index or 2128 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 1175 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1176 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠317.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.7°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 28 December 2094 at 08:42 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 January 2095 at 02:21 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 369 556 km

Moon is 369 556 km (229 631 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 985 km (226 791 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 5 January 2095 at 02:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 January 2095 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

16 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

1 day after previous South standstill on 6 January 2095 at 01:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.121°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.116° in the next northern standstill on 19 January 2095 at 00:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 20 January 2095 at 12:48 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
