Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 6 October 2082 at 20:48.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1788"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1923".

Hunter Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2082 after 25 days on 5 November 2082 at 14:38.

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 1023 / 1976

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 8 October 2082 at 14:12 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 October 2082 at 21:44 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 777 km

Moon is 400 777 km (249 031 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 831 km (221 725 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 2 October 2082 at 22:05 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 October 2082 at 11:28 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 28 September 2082 at 04:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.825°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.713° in the next northern standstill on 12 October 2082 at 18:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 21 October 2082 at 18:50 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
