Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 4 January 2093 at 13:22.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

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

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2093 after 2 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 1150 / 2103

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1150 of Meeus index or 2103 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 31 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 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠6.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠6.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠22.9°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 05:43. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 28 December 2092 at 07:30 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 25 January 2093 at 18:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 189 km

This apogee Moon is 406 189 km (252 394 mi) away from Earth. It is 781 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 520 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 30 December 2092 at 11:22 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 January 2093 at 16:59 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

24 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

12 days since the previous standstill on 28 December 2092 at 21:41 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.841°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠20.841° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 January 2093 at 17:53 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 12 January 2093 at 17:43 in ♋ Cancer 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.
