Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 28 January 2082 at 20:46.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1947".

Snow Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2082 after 10 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 4 days 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:11, this is 16 days after last perigee on 17 January 2082 at 16:31 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2082 at 17:46 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 405 315 km

This apogee Moon is 405 315 km (251 851 mi) away from Earth. It is 93 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 394 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 February 2082 at 00:16 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.230°. Next 6 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 10 days

After 10 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.
