Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 9 August 2084 at 09:32.

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1969"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1895".

Sturgeon Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2084 after 1 day on 16 August 2084 at 00:29.

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 1046 / 1999

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1046 of Meeus index or 1999 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1046 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 1047 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 ∠203.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠203.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:11, this is 15 days after last apogee on 30 July 2084 at 05:23 in ♋ Cancer. 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 26 August 2084 at 17:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 360 203 km

This perigee Moon is 360 203 km (223 820 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 305 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 153 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 13 August 2084 at 17:30 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 August 2084 at 05:21 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 11 August 2084 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.594°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.538° in the next northern standstill on 24 August 2084 at 17:51 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 16 August 2084 at 00:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
