Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 12 May 2084 at 23:43
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 20 May 2084 at 02:36
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 26 May 2084 at 17:35
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 3 June 2084 at 10:13

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 1043 / 1996

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1043 of Meeus index or 1996 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1043 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 41 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1044 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠128.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠128.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157°. 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 apogee

15 days after point of perigee on 23 April 2084 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 9 May 2084 at 08:15 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 348 km

Moon is 405 348 km (251 872 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 281 km (251 830 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 26 April 2084 at 09:18 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 10 May 2084 at 08:57 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

12 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 7 May 2084 at 17:28 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.673°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.645° in the next southern standstill on 21 May 2084 at 11:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 20 May 2084 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
