Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 27 June 2096 at 13:31
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 5 July 2096 at 17:02

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 1193 / 2146

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1193 of Meeus index or 2146 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 1193 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1194 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠26.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠47.7°. 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 apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 18 June 2096 at 18:27 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 June 2096 at 19:58 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 395 493 km

Moon is 395 493 km (245 748 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 980 km (251 643 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 18 June 2096 at 09:30 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 July 2096 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2096 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.330°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.318° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2096 at 06:20 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
