Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 21 September 2097 at 13:00.

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 in ♈ Aries

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♉ Taurus later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1898"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1898" and ∠1913".

Harvest Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2097 after 27 days on 21 October 2097 at 01:23.

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 1208 / 2161

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1208 of Meeus index or 2161 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 3 hours and 11 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 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠47.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠47.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠76.4°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 14 September 2097 at 20:28 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 September 2097 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 377 675 km

The Moon is 377 675 km (234 676 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 864 km (229 823 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after descending node on 9 September 2097 at 17:26 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 September 2097 at 02:09 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 14 September 2097 at 18:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.835°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.911° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 September 2097 at 13:01 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 5 October 2097 at 11:45 in ♎ Libra 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.
