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 in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Lunation 1220 / 2173

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1220 of Meeus index or 2173 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.35 days

Length of current 1220 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 1221 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.9°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:51, this is 12 days after last perigee on 26 August 2098 at 01:27 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 September 2098 at 09:26 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 405 924 km

This apogee Moon is 405 924 km (252 229 mi) away from Earth. It is 516 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 785 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

9 days after its descending node on 29 August 2098 at 10:54 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2098 at 21:33 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 4 September 2098 at 08:51 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.462°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.525° in the next northern standstill on 18 September 2098 at 20:59 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 10 September 2098 at 17:33 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
