Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 16 August 2084 at 00:29.

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.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♉ Taurus later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1852"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1852" and ∠1897".

Sturgeon Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2084 after 24 days on 14 September 2084 at 09:15.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1046 / 1999

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 14 August 2084 at 14:11 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 August 2084 at 17:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 386 928 km

Moon is 386 928 km (240 426 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 242 km (251 806 mi).

Moon before descending node

6 days 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 6 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

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

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 11 August 2084 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.594°. Next 4 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 10 days

After 10 days on 31 August 2084 at 07:45 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
