Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 28 January 2095 at 17:07.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1834"

Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1834" and ∠1948".

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2095 after 19 days on 19 February 2095 at 06:59.

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 1175 / 2128

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1175 of Meeus index or 2128 from Brown series.

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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 25 January 2095 at 03:56 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 February 2095 at 05:16 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 390 857 km

Moon is 390 857 km (242 867 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 759 km (223 544 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 17 January 2095 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 February 2095 at 11:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 19 January 2095 at 00:03 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.116°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.164° in the next southern standstill on 2 February 2095 at 11:47 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 4 February 2095 at 21:28 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
