Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 25 October 2083 at 14:36.

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 passing about ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1932".

Hunter Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2083 after 26 days on 24 November 2083 at 08:23.

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 1036 / 1989

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1036 of Meeus index or 1989 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 1036 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 52 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2083. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1037 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠325°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠325°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.6°. 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 apogee

14 days after point of perigee on 13 October 2083 at 13:59 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 29 October 2083 at 11:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 326 km

Moon is 405 326 km (251 858 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 765 km (252 131 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 18 October 2083 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 2 November 2083 at 04:57 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 15 October 2083 at 18:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.557°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.436° in the next northern standstill on 29 October 2083 at 17:47 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 9 November 2083 at 20:15 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
