Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 11 October 2089 at 11:22.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1814"

Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1927".

Hunter Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2089 after 1 day on 19 October 2089 at 13:04.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 1110 / 2063

The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1110 of Meeus index or 2063 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 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 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠38.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠38.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠64.1°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 13 October 2089 at 11:47 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 October 2089 at 23:05 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 124 km

The Moon is 395 124 km (245 519 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 917 km (229 234 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 03:46 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 31 October 2089 at 06:06 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 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

8 days since the previous standstill on 9 October 2089 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.220°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.262° at the point of next northern standstill on 24 October 2089 at 02:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 19 October 2089 at 13:04 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.
