Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 8 July 2093 at 17:14.

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 ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2093 after 28 days on 7 August 2093 at 00:23.

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 1156 / 2109

The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1156 of Meeus index or 2109 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2093. It is 13 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠167.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠167.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠190.3°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 8 July 2093 at 18:17 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 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 July 2093 at 09:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 600 km

The Moon is 363 600 km (225 931 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 411 km (252 532 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 06:40 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 23 July 2093 at 01:17 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

13 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 after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 8 July 2093 at 09:04 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.641°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.635° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 July 2093 at 21:21 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 23 July 2093 at 12:36 in ♌ Leo 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.
