Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 23 August 2084 at 03:34.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1773"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1899".

Harvest Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2084 after 19 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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 before apogee

10 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 August 2084 at 17:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 375 km

Moon is 404 375 km (251 267 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 242 km (251 806 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 August 2084 at 05:21 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 24 August 2084 at 17:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.538°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.423° in the next southern standstill on 7 September 2084 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 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.
