Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 29 September 2084 at 21:16.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1906" and ∠1918".

Hunter Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2084 after 11 days on 13 October 2084 at 20:12.

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 1048 / 2001

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 1048 of Meeus index or 2001 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 1048 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 30 minutes. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1049 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠268.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠268.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠301.9°. 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 perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 23 September 2084 at 10:54 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2084 at 09:29 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 970 km

Moon is 375 970 km (233 617 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 624 km (229 674 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 23 September 2084 at 08:24 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 October 2084 at 00:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2084 at 01:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.317°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.185° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2084 at 04:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 13 October 2084 at 20:12 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
