Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Lunation 1050 / 2003

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 December 2084 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 374 958 km

Moon is 374 958 km (232 988 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 219 km (222 587 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 13 December 2084 at 19:14 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 December 2084 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 12 December 2084 at 00:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.896°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.910° in the next southern standstill on 26 December 2084 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 27 December 2084 at 09:07 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
