Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 2 October 2098 at 05:48.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1922".

Hunter Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2098 after 1 day on 10 October 2098 at 09:20.

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 1221 / 2174

The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1221 of Meeus index or 2174 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 1221 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1222 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠26.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠48.5°. 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

4 days after point of apogee on 5 October 2098 at 09:05 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 October 2098 at 07:37 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 852 km

Moon is 398 852 km (247 835 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 149 km (227 514 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 25 September 2098 at 20:31 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 October 2098 at 04:03 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 1 October 2098 at 16:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.555°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.546° in the next northern standstill on 16 October 2098 at 02:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 10 October 2098 at 09:20 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
