Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

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.

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 1039 / 1992

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1039 of Meeus index or 1992 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.48 days

Length of current 1039 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 36 minutes. It is 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 1040 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠15°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. 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 perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 19 January 2084 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 February 2084 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 376 781 km

Moon is 376 781 km (234 121 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 658 km (225 345 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 22 January 2084 at 16:11 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 February 2084 at 23:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 19 January 2084 at 11:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.337°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.324° in the next southern standstill on 2 February 2084 at 09:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 6 February 2084 at 04:53 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
