Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 13 October 2095 at 09:30.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1900"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1900" and ∠1926".

Hunter Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2095 after 24 days on 11 November 2095 at 19:05.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 1184 / 2137

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1184 of Meeus index or 2137 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 13 October 2095 at 09:25 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 October 2095 at 21:48 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 377 328 km

Moon is 377 328 km (234 461 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 522 km (252 601 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 16 October 2095 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2095 at 04:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon in northern standstill

At 21:15 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.525°. Next 15 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.619° in its southern standstill point on 2 November 2095 at 15:39 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 28 October 2095 at 06:32 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
