Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 13 February 2082 at 06:16.

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 ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1965"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1943".

Snow Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2082 after 28 days on 14 March 2082 at 16:45.

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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:46, this is 11 days after last apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 March 2082 at 08:00 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 360 321 km

This perigee Moon is 360 321 km (223 893 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 187 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 035 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 00:16 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 27 February 2082 at 08:13 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.278°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.301° in the next southern standstill on 21 February 2082 at 17:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 27 February 2082 at 14:48 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
