Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 26 September 2045 at 06:11.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1874"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1874" and ∠1917".

Harvest Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2045 after 25 days on 25 October 2045 at 21:31.

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 565 / 1518

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 565 of Meeus index or 1518 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠16.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠16.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠34.3°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 22 September 2045 at 12:20 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 October 2045 at 08:16 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 382 515 km

The Moon is 382 515 km (237 684 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 867 km (225 475 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after ascending node on 22 September 2045 at 19:34 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 October 2045 at 15:11 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 17 September 2045 at 22:27 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.716°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.609° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 October 2045 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 10 October 2045 at 10:37 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
