Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 25 August 2096 at 23:56.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1790"

Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1900".

Harvest Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2096 after 5 days on 2 September 2096 at 15:36.

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 1195 / 2148

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1195 of Meeus index or 2148 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 1195 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes. It is 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 1196 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.9°. 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 25 August 2096 at 08:09 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 September 2096 at 10:00 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 536 km

Moon is 400 536 km (248 882 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 386 km (228 283 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 25 August 2096 at 06:52 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 7 September 2096 at 18:11 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in southern standstill

At 21:09 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.564°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.671° in its northern standstill point on 10 September 2096 at 21:55 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 2 September 2096 at 15:36 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
