Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 27 November 2084 at 21:39.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1960"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1946".

Cold Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2084 after 12 days on 12 December 2084 at 03:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 1050 / 2003

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1050 of Meeus index or 2003 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.48 days

Length of current 1050 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 1051 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠326.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠326.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.2°. 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 22:16, this is 11 days after last apogee on 18 November 2084 at 03:12 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 362 581 km

This perigee Moon is 362 581 km (225 297 mi) away from Earth. It is 73 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 775 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 16 November 2084 at 13:34 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 30 November 2084 at 06:21 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 28 November 2084 at 18:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.903°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.896° in the next northern standstill on 12 December 2084 at 00:00 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 12 December 2084 at 03:19 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
