Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 20 January 2093 at 12:03.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1949".

Snow Moon after 17 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2093 after 17 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18.

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 1150 / 2103

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 perigee

Moon is at perigee at 18:37. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 10 January 2093 at 05:43 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 956 km

This perigee Moon is 359 956 km (223 666 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 552 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 400 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 13 January 2093 at 16:59 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 January 2093 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 09:00 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-20.833°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2093. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠20.836° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 8 February 2093 at 00:49.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 27 January 2093 at 03:22 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
