Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 13 February 2084 at 13:28.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".

Snow Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2084 after 5 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36.

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 1040 / 1993

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1040 of Meeus index or 1993 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 1040 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 11 minutes. It is 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 1041 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠58.7°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 15 February 2084 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 466 km

Moon is 405 466 km (251 945 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 15 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 159 km (228 763 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 4 February 2084 at 23:18 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 February 2084 at 23:12 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

11 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

1 day after previous North standstill on 15 February 2084 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.289°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.203° in the next southern standstill on 29 February 2084 at 15:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
