Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Lunation 1183 / 2136

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 2 September 2095 at 11:07 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 383 172 km

Moon is 383 172 km (238 092 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 244 km (222 603 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 7 September 2095 at 00:47 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 19 September 2095 at 14:10 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon in southern standstill

At 01:37 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.188°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.292° in its northern standstill point on 21 September 2095 at 14:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 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.
