Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 January 2096 at 19:20.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1850"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2096 after 27 days on 8 February 2096 at 09:50.

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 1187 / 2140

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 1187 of Meeus index or 2140 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1187 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 1188 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠255°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠255°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.7°. 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 5 January 2096 at 18:18 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 January 2096 at 20:30 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 387 497 km

Moon is 387 497 km (240 779 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 322 km (251 234 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 6 January 2096 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 January 2096 at 00:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

4 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

2 days after previous North standstill on 9 January 2096 at 02:58 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.638°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.665° in the next southern standstill on 23 January 2096 at 11:33 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 25 January 2096 at 09:45 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
