Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 19 September 2089 at 21:55.

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 passing about ∠13° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1867"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1867" and ∠1913".

Harvest Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2089 after 26 days on 19 October 2089 at 13:04.

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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1109 of Meeus index or 2062 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 after apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 15 September 2089 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 October 2089 at 16:29 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 383 893 km

The Moon is 383 893 km (238 540 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 744 km (226 020 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 20 September 2089 at 20:20 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 3 October 2089 at 21:22 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

11 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 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.219° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 September 2089 at 20:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 4 October 2089 at 01:15 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.
