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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1796"

Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1796" and ∠1946".

Snow Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2093 after 8 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18.

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 1151 / 2104

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1151 of Meeus index or 2104 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 29 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 1 minute shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 8 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠22.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠22.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠43.9°.

Moon before perigee

8 days after point of perigee on 25 January 2093 at 18:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 399 033 km

The Moon is 399 033 km (247 948 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 386 km (251 895 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 26 January 2093 at 22:34 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 9 February 2093 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 25 January 2093 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.833°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.836° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 February 2093 at 00:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 11 February 2093 at 12:18 in ♌ Leo 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.
