Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 25 August 2090 at 08:58.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1899".

Harvest Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2090 after 13 days on 8 September 2090 at 22:44.

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 1121 / 2074

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1121 of Meeus index or 2074 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 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 4 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠348.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠3.8°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 01:13. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 13 August 2090 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 9 September 2090 at 14:56 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 032 km

This perigee Moon is 358 032 km (222 471 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 476 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 324 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 13:58 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 9 September 2090 at 07:13 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 13:58 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 21 August 2090 at 05:49 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.266°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.232° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 September 2090 at 19:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 8 September 2090 at 22:44 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.
