Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

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

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".

Snow Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2092 after 7 days on 23 February 2092 at 05:29.

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 1139 / 2092

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1139 of Meeus index or 2092 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.62 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes. It is 51 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠69.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠69.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠106.4°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 03:05. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 2 February 2092 at 09:05 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next perigee on 27 February 2092 at 05:27 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 404 414 km

This apogee Moon is 404 414 km (251 291 mi) away from Earth. It is 994 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 295 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 7 February 2092 at 23:08 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 February 2092 at 09:49 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 4 February 2092 at 17:30 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.423°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.419° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 February 2092 at 23:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 23 February 2092 at 05:29 in ♍ Virgo 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.
