Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1937"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 8 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.

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 1162 / 2115

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1162 of Meeus index or 2115 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.47 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2093. It is 40 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 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠335.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠335.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠352.5°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 19 December 2093 at 18:42 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 370 080 km

The Moon is 370 080 km (229 957 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 096 km (252 336 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 19 December 2093 at 15:25 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 January 2094 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

18 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

5 days since the previous standstill on 19 December 2093 at 08:08 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.474°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.474° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 January 2094 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51 in ♋ Cancer 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.
