Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 13 December 2092 at 21:59.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1771"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1950".

Cold Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2093 after 28 days on 12 January 2093 at 17:43.

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 1149 / 2102

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1149 of Meeus index or 2102 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 34 minutes. It is 38 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 2 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠350.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠350.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠6.2°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 14 December 2092 at 04:05 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 December 2092 at 07:30 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 656 km

The Moon is 404 656 km (251 442 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 969 km (221 810 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 3 December 2092 at 03:12 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 17 December 2092 at 11:56 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

25 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 at northern standstill

At 10:59 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠20.845°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2092. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-20.841° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 28 December 2092 at 21:41.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 28 December 2092 at 16:10 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
