Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 11 September 2089 at 18:01.

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1909".

Harvest Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2089 after 4 days on 19 September 2089 at 21:55.

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 1109 / 2062

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1109 of Meeus index or 2062 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.39 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 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 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠19.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠19.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠38.1°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 19:18. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 3 September 2089 at 12:32 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next perigee on 1 October 2089 at 16:29 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 459 km

This apogee Moon is 405 459 km (251 941 mi) away from Earth. It is 51 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 250 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 6 September 2089 at 11:05 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 September 2089 at 20:20 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 12 September 2089 at 09:44 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.244°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.219° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 September 2089 at 20:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 19 September 2089 at 21:55 in ♓ Pisces 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.
