Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1928".

Beaver Moon after 21 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2084 after 21 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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 06:46, this is 12 days after last perigee on 8 October 2084 at 09:29 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 2 November 2084 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 404 207 km

This apogee Moon is 404 207 km (251 163 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2084. It is 1 201 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 156 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 20 October 2084 at 10:21 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 November 2084 at 01:21 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 18 October 2084 at 09:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.073°. Next 10 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 7 days

After 7 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.
