Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1773"

Harvest Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2095 after 13 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1183 / 2136

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 1183 of Meeus index or 2136 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 1183 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1184 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠142.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 17 August 2095 at 18:05 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 2 September 2095 at 11:07 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 404 175 km

Moon is 404 175 km (251 143 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 946 km (252 243 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 23 August 2095 at 13:13 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 September 2095 at 00:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2095 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.058°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.188° in the next southern standstill on 9 September 2095 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
