Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 13 October 2084 at 20:12.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1928".

Hunter Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2084 after 22 days on 12 November 2084 at 10:10.

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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 8 October 2084 at 09:29 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 21 October 2084 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 230 km

Moon is 405 230 km (251 798 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 207 km (251 163 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 10:21 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 3 November 2084 at 01:21 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 18 October 2084 at 09:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.073°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.986° in the next southern standstill on 1 November 2084 at 10:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 29 October 2084 at 09:47 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
