Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.

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 is entering ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1786"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1947".

Cold Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 28 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1161 / 2114

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1161 of Meeus index or 2114 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 50 minutes. It is 32 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 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠314.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠314.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠335.6°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 401 424 km

The Moon is 401 424 km (249 433 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 269 km (251 822 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 December 2093 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

25 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 before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.406°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠22.462° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 December 2093 at 10:39 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 18 December 2093 at 07:47 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
