Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 September 2082 at 10:04.

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 ∠16° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1913".

Hunter Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2082 after 13 days on 6 October 2082 at 20:48.

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 1023 / 1976

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 1023 of Meeus index or 1976 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1023 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 47 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 1024 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 57 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 12 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠342.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠342.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠358°. 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 11:21, this is 12 days after last apogee on 11 September 2082 at 03:35 in ♉ Taurus. 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 8 October 2082 at 14:12 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 905 km

This perigee Moon is 358 905 km (223 013 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 603 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 451 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 20 September 2082 at 04:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 October 2082 at 22:05 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

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 15 September 2082 at 12:03 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.890°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.825° in the next southern standstill on 28 September 2082 at 04:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 6 October 2082 at 20:48 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
