Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 28 September 2097 at 13:39.

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 29.47 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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 06:20. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 14 September 2097 at 20:28 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 12 October 2097 at 16:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 369 864 km

This perigee Moon is 369 864 km (229 823 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2097. It is 7 356 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 492 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 24 September 2097 at 02:09 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 October 2097 at 00:55 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 28 September 2097 at 13:01 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.911°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.965° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 October 2097 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 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.
