Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 9 January 2094 at 21:36.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1958"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 16 days on 31 January 2094 at 12:36.

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 1162 / 2115

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 2094. 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 before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 January 2094 at 05:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 366 167 km

The Moon is 366 167 km (227 526 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 139 km (221 916 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after ascending node on 2 January 2094 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 16 January 2094 at 02:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 19:36 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-22.474°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2094. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠22.474° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 28 January 2094 at 23:58.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 16 January 2094 at 19:05 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
