Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 5 December 2082 at 08:57.

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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1803"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1948".

Cold Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2083 after 28 days on 4 January 2083 at 02:32.

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 1025 / 1978

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 1025 of Meeus index or 1978 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 1025 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than next lunation 1026 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠13.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠13.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 1 December 2082 at 21:23 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 December 2082 at 18:03 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 509 km

Moon is 397 509 km (247 001 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 976 km (224 921 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 26 November 2082 at 01:01 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 December 2082 at 14:39 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 05:19 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.402°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2082. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.412° in its southern standstill point on 19 December 2082 at 08:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 19 December 2082 at 15:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
