Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 26 September 2085 at 18:18.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1917".

Hunter Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2085 after 1 day on 3 October 2085 at 08:53.

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 1060 / 2013

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1060 of Meeus index or 2013 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 53 minutes. It is 32 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 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠204.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠204.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠234.1°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 22:42. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 16 September 2085 at 12:30 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 14 October 2085 at 00:42 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 360 069 km

This perigee Moon is 360 069 km (223 737 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 439 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 287 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 26 September 2085 at 04:15 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 October 2085 at 17:26 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 25 September 2085 at 14:25 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.613°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.510° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 October 2085 at 05:07 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 3 October 2085 at 08:53 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.
