Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 9 September 2096 at 10:17.

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 is entering ♌ Leo

Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes. It is 3 hours and 8 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 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠110.9°.

Moon after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 6 September 2096 at 10:00 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 September 2096 at 03:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 373 923 km

The Moon is 373 923 km (232 345 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 898 km (251 592 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 7 September 2096 at 18:11 in ♉ Taurus. 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 21 September 2096 at 09:31 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 10 September 2096 at 21:55 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.671°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.795° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 September 2096 at 05:26 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 16 September 2096 at 15:10 in ♍ Virgo 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.
