Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 4 September 2100 at 08:49.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1948"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1903".

Harvest Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2100 after 12 days on 18 September 2100 at 11:32.

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 1245 / 2198

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1245 of Meeus index or 2198 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 1245 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 minute longer than next lunation 1246 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠320.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠340.4°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 25 August 2100 at 23:00 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 September 2100 at 19:23 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 368 048 km

Moon is 368 048 km (228 694 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 868 km (226 097 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 4 September 2100 at 02:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 September 2100 at 01:56 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 29 August 2100 at 17:37 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.356°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.345° in the next southern standstill on 11 September 2100 at 14:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 18 September 2100 at 11:32 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
