Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 24 December 2083 at 03:52.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1779"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1951".

Cold Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2084 after 28 days on 22 January 2084 at 23:15.

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 1038 / 1991

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 1038 of Meeus index or 1991 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 1038 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 52 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1039 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠359.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠359.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠15°. 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

2 days after point of apogee on 22 December 2083 at 20:30 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 January 2084 at 20:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 890 km

Moon is 402 890 km (250 344 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 232 km (222 595 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 12 December 2083 at 02:09 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 26 December 2083 at 09:52 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 23 December 2083 at 04:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.297°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.325° in the next southern standstill on 6 January 2084 at 00:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 7 January 2084 at 17:17 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
