Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 13 August 2083 at 12:45.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♎ Libra

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1913"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1913" and ∠1895".

Sturgeon Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 10 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.

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 1034 / 1987

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1034 of Meeus index or 1987 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 1034 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1035 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠266.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠266.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠299.9°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 374 640 km

Moon is 374 640 km (232 791 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 256 km (229 445 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 12 August 2083 at 13:29 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 August 2083 at 13:34 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

18 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

7 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.955°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.925° in the next southern standstill on 22 August 2083 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
