Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days 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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1790"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1950".

Cold Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2093 after 26 days on 12 January 2093 at 17:43.

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 1149 / 2102

The Moon is 18 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

3 days 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 10 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 400 394 km

The Moon is 400 394 km (248 793 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 969 km (221 810 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 11:56 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 30 December 2092 at 11:22 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 11:56 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 15 December 2092 at 10:59 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.845°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.841° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 December 2092 at 21:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 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.
