Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1828"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1828" and ∠1896".

Harvest Moon after 21 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2090 after 21 days on 8 September 2090 at 22:44.

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 1120 / 2073

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1120 of Meeus index or 2073 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2090. It is 24 minutes shorter 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠331.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠331.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠348.5°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 13 August 2090 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 26 August 2090 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 392 105 km

The Moon is 392 105 km (243 643 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 032 km (222 471 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 13 August 2090 at 01:17 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 August 2090 at 13:58 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, 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 6 August 2090 at 13:57 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.326°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.266° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 August 2090 at 05:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 25 August 2090 at 08:58 in ♍ Virgo 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.
