Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 18 February 2093 at 21:32.

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 ∠22° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1939".

Worm Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2093 after 18 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06.

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 1151 / 2104

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 20:31. It is 16 days after previous apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 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 March 2093 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 184 km

This perigee Moon is 365 184 km (226 915 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 676 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 172 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 9 February 2093 at 23:58 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 23 February 2093 at 08:08 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

12 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 after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 21 February 2093 at 17:26 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.882°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.943° at the point of next northern standstill on 7 March 2093 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 25 February 2093 at 15:05 in ♓ Pisces 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.
