Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1923".

Beaver Moon after 21 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2093 after 21 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46.

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 1159 / 2112

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1159 of Meeus index or 2112 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.55 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 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 33 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 30 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠247.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠247.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠284.3°.

Moon before perigee

11 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 405 269 km

The Moon is 405 269 km (251 822 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 214 km (251 167 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 13:29 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 26 October 2093 at 05:22 in ♑ Capricorn.

New draconic month

At 13:29 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 11 October 2093 at 17:32 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.080°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.213° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 October 2093 at 15:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 20 October 2093 at 07:33 in ♎ Libra 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.
