Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

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

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 1015 / 1968

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1015 of Meeus index or 1968 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 1015 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 1016 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠122.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠122.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠154.1°. 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 before apogee

12 days 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 3 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 401 488 km

Moon is 401 488 km (249 473 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 315 km (251 851 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.230°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.278° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 13 February 2082 at 06:16 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
