Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 18 September 2039 at 08:23.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1909"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1909" and ∠1910".

Hunter Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2039 after 12 days on 2 October 2039 at 07:23.

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 491 / 1444

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 491 of Meeus index or 1444 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 46 minutes. It is 9 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠294.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠321.1°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 10 September 2039 at 14:24 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 September 2039 at 02:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 536 km

The Moon is 375 536 km (233 347 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 956 km (229 259 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 10 September 2039 at 13:18 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 September 2039 at 01:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 12 September 2039 at 12:07 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.993°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.118° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 September 2039 at 19:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 2 October 2039 at 07:23 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
