Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1910".

Hunter Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2085 after 14 days on 3 October 2085 at 08:53.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1059 / 2012

At 09:10 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1059 of Meeus index or 2012 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.66 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 56 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2085. It is 3 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 12 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 51 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠180.2°

The true anomaly is ∠180.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠204.1°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 16 September 2085 at 12:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 October 2085 at 22:42 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 404 157 km

The Moon is 404 157 km (251 132 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 069 km (223 737 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 11 September 2085 at 15:17 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 September 2085 at 04:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 10 September 2085 at 21:10 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.764°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.613° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 September 2085 at 14:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
