Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1959"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1927".

Worm Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2093 after 24 days on 11 April 2093 at 16:35.

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 1152 / 2105

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1152 of Meeus index or 2105 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 12 minutes. It is 42 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 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠43.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠43.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠73.1°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 6 March 2093 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 March 2093 at 10:04 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 940 km

The Moon is 365 940 km (227 385 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 821 km (229 796 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 9 March 2093 at 06:15 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 March 2093 at 12:52 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 7 March 2093 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.943°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.054° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 March 2093 at 23:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 27 March 2093 at 03:18 in ♈ Aries 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.
