Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 29 October 2084 at 09:47.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1966"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1935".

Beaver Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2084 after 9 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 1049 / 2002

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1049 of Meeus index or 2002 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 1049 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1050 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠301.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠326.7°. 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 perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:00, this is 12 days after last apogee on 21 October 2084 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 November 2084 at 03:12 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 057 km

This perigee Moon is 368 057 km (228 700 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 549 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 299 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

13 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 November 2084 at 01:21 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 1 November 2084 at 10:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.986°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.920° in the next northern standstill on 14 November 2084 at 17:16 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 12 November 2084 at 10:10 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
