Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 11 January 2083 at 08:55.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1964"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1951".

Snow Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2083 after 19 days on 2 February 2083 at 18:20.

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 1026 / 1979

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:19, this is 15 days after last apogee on 29 December 2082 at 13:39 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 26 January 2083 at 10:16 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 367 634 km

This perigee Moon is 367 634 km (228 437 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 126 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 722 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 6 January 2083 at 17:32 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 January 2083 at 14:07 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

22 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

12 days after previous North standstill on 2 January 2083 at 11:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.424°. Next day 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 3 days

After 3 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.
