Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 11 August 2096 at 05:01.

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 ♋ Cancer

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter 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 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠47.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠47.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠76.1°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2096 at 00:11 in ♊ Gemini. 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 25 August 2096 at 08:09 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 368 202 km

The Moon is 368 202 km (228 790 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 140 km (251 121 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 11 August 2096 at 17:28 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 25 August 2096 at 06:52 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 16:29 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.461°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.564° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 28 August 2096 at 21:09.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 18 August 2096 at 03:00 in ♌ Leo 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.
