Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 3 February 2093 at 07:27.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1779"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1944".

Snow Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2093 after 2 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1151 of Meeus index or 2104 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 22 February 2093 at 20:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 966 km

The Moon is 402 966 km (250 391 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 184 km (226 915 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 23:58 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 23 February 2093 at 08:08 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 23:58 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 8 February 2093 at 00:49 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.836°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.882° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 February 2093 at 17:26 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 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.
