Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 13 January 2095 at 02:28.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1890"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1890" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2095 after 4 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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 after perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 9 January 2095 at 02:21 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 25 January 2095 at 03:56 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 379 258 km

Moon is 379 258 km (235 660 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 464 km (251 944 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 January 2095 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

25 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

10 days after previous South standstill on 6 January 2095 at 01:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.121°. Next 2 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 4 days

After 4 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.
