Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 29 September 2061 at 09:32.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1932"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1932" and ∠1917".

Harvest Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2061 after 28 days on 28 October 2061 at 20:12.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 763 / 1716

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 763 of Meeus index or 1716 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 20 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 43 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠84.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠84.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠120.1°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 20 September 2061 at 15:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 October 2061 at 13:00 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 371 025 km

The Moon is 371 025 km (230 544 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 993 km (227 418 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 29 September 2061 at 16:29 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 October 2061 at 16:05 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 22 September 2061 at 01:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.618°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.627° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 October 2061 at 08:08 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 13 October 2061 at 10:41 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.
