Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 19 February 2095 at 06:59.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1940".

Snow Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2095 after 28 days on 21 March 2095 at 01:10.

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 1176 / 2129

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1176 of Meeus index or 2129 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 1176 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1177 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠337.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠337.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354°. 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 apogee

14 days after point of perigee on 6 February 2095 at 05:16 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 February 2095 at 16:10 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 176 km

Moon is 405 176 km (251 765 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 233 km (252 421 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 14 February 2095 at 01:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 February 2095 at 16:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 15 February 2095 at 05:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.215°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.337° in the next southern standstill on 1 March 2095 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 6 March 2095 at 07:39 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
