Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 4 January 2083 at 02:32.

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 is entering ♌ Leo

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1853"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1853" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2083 after 28 days on 2 February 2083 at 18:20.

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 1026 / 1979

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 1026 of Meeus index or 1979 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 1026 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1027 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠55.2°. 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

6 days after point of apogee on 29 December 2082 at 13:39 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 January 2083 at 11:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 895 km

Moon is 386 895 km (240 405 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 634 km (228 437 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 23 December 2082 at 05:41 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 January 2083 at 17:32 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 2 January 2083 at 11:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.424°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.465° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2083 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 18 January 2083 at 03:50 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
