Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 1188 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 2 hours and 18 minutes longer than next lunation 1189 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠291.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠319.2°. 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

5 days after point of apogee on 14 February 2096 at 17:34 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 26 February 2096 at 11:38 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 389 470 km

Moon is 389 470 km (242 005 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 489 km (226 483 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 17 February 2096 at 03:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 March 2096 at 02:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 19 February 2096 at 20:23 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.822°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.928° in the next northern standstill on 3 March 2096 at 15:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 23 February 2096 at 22:28 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
