Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 27 September 2089 at 09:15.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1917".

Hunter Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2089 after 18 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 perigee

Moon is at perigee at 16:29. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 15 September 2089 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 13 October 2089 at 11:47 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 744 km

This perigee Moon is 363 744 km (226 020 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 236 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 612 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

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

Draconic month

25 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 after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 26 September 2089 at 20:57 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.219°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.220° at the point of next southern standstill on 9 October 2089 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 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.
