Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon is entering ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1770"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1949".

Snow Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2083 after 8 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 1027 / 1980

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1027 of Meeus index or 1980 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 1027 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 1028 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠55.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠55.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠89.1°. 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 before apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 14 January 2083 at 11:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 January 2083 at 10:16 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 405 000 km

Moon is 405 000 km (251 655 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 447 km (251 312 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 19 January 2083 at 14:07 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 February 2083 at 00:47 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2083 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.465°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.490° in the next northern standstill on 29 January 2083 at 19:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 2 February 2083 at 18:20 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
