Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 24 August 2082 at 01:18.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1899".

Harvest Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2082 after 11 days on 7 September 2082 at 04:30.

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 1022 / 1975

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1022 of Meeus index or 1975 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1022 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2082. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1023 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠323.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠323.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠342.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:48, this is 11 days after last apogee on 14 August 2082 at 10:53 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 11 September 2082 at 03:35 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 291 km

This perigee Moon is 363 291 km (225 739 mi) away from Earth. It is 783 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 065 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 23 August 2082 at 18:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 September 2082 at 17:31 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 19 August 2082 at 03:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.949°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.941° in the next southern standstill on 31 August 2082 at 22:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 7 September 2082 at 04:30 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
