Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 20 October 2093 at 07:33.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1931".

Beaver Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2093 after 7 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 1160 / 2113

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1160 of Meeus index or 2113 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 34 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 49 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠284.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠284.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠314.2°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 10:39. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 13 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 9 November 2093 at 23:18 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 370 030 km

This perigee Moon is 370 030 km (229 926 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2093. It is 7 522 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 326 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 05:22 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 8 November 2093 at 15:46 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 25 October 2093 at 15:11 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.213°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.330° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 November 2093 at 02:08 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46 in ♉ Taurus 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.
