Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 1 January 2084 at 01:54.

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 leaving the last ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2084 after 16 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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:08, this is 14 days after last apogee on 22 December 2083 at 20:30 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 January 2084 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 232 km

This perigee Moon is 358 232 km (222 595 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 276 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 124 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 26 December 2083 at 09:52 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 January 2084 at 12:22 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 00:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.325°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2084. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.337° in its northern standstill point on 19 January 2084 at 11:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
