Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 14 January 2082 at 18:11.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2082 after 25 days on 13 February 2082 at 06:16.

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 1014 / 1967

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1014 of Meeus index or 1967 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.68 days

Length of current 1014 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 18 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1015 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠84.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠84.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠122.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 17 January 2082 at 16:31 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 833 km

Moon is 363 833 km (226 075 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 15 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 315 km (251 851 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 17 January 2082 at 15:31 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 12 January 2082 at 16:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.182°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.230° in the next southern standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 28 January 2082 at 20:46 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
