Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 January 2094 at 19:05.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 14 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 1163 / 2116

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1163 of Meeus index or 2116 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 38 minutes. It is 37 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠352.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠352.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠7.9°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 05:33. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 31 January 2094 at 11:51 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 139 km

This perigee Moon is 357 139 km (221 916 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 369 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 217 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 16 January 2094 at 02:40 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 January 2094 at 09:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

15 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 15 January 2094 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.474°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.474° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 January 2094 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 31 January 2094 at 12:36 in ♌ Leo 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.
