Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1856" and ∠1920".

Hunter Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2095 after 6 days on 13 October 2095 at 09:30.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Synodic month length 29.73 days

Length of current 1184 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 38 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1185 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠168.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.1°. 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

6 days after point of apogee on 29 September 2095 at 20:21 in ♎ Libra. 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 13 October 2095 at 09:25 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 386 110 km

Moon is 386 110 km (239 918 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 686 km (221 634 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 4 October 2095 at 02:06 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 16 October 2095 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon in southern standstill

At 09:24 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.437°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.525° in its northern standstill point on 18 October 2095 at 21:15 in ♋ Cancer.
