Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 22 February 2094 at 02:36.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1937".

Worm Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2094 after 2 days on 2 March 2094 at 07:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 2 March 2094 at 07:35
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 10 March 2094 at 00:22
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 16 March 2094 at 15:44
  • First Quarter in Gemini ♊ on 23 March 2094 at 20:05

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 1164 / 2117

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1164 of Meeus index or 2117 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.42 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 1 minute. It is 8 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 43 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 26 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠24.6°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 15:03. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 14 February 2094 at 18:39 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 15 March 2094 at 04:25 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 118 km

This apogee Moon is 406 118 km (252 350 mi) away from Earth. It is 710 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 591 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 25 February 2094 at 12:58 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 March 2094 at 18:24 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 25 February 2094 at 05:34 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.582°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.707° at the point of next southern standstill on 11 March 2094 at 14:07 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 2 March 2094 at 07:35 in ♍ Virgo 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.
