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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1905".

Harvest Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2092 after 7 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33.

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 1146 / 2099

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1146 of Meeus index or 2099 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. It is 48 minutes longer 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 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 26 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠282.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠282.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠312.2°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 07:44. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 25 August 2092 at 18:58 in ♊ Gemini. 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 22 September 2092 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 369 784 km

This perigee Moon is 369 784 km (229 773 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2092. It is 7 276 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 572 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 30 August 2092 at 21:39 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 September 2092 at 21:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 28 August 2092 at 04:01 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.103°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-20.164° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 September 2092 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33 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.
