Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 11 December 2095 at 06:21.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1815"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1815" and ∠1950".

Cold Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2096 after 24 days on 9 January 2096 at 19:20.

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 1186 / 2139

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1186 of Meeus index or 2139 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.73 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 30 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠219.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠219.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠255°.

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 9 December 2095 at 04:46 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 20 December 2095 at 23:26 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 394 938 km

The Moon is 394 938 km (245 403 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 919 km (251 605 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 10 December 2095 at 14:42 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 December 2095 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 12 December 2095 at 17:11 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.653°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.640° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 December 2095 at 03:42 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 26 December 2095 at 18:24 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.
