Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1779"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1951".

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2086 after 22 days on 29 January 2086 at 17:49.

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 1063 / 2016

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1063 of Meeus index or 2016 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 1063 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than next lunation 1064 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠305°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠305°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠329.2°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 5 January 2086 at 12:32 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 January 2086 at 08:10 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 402 968 km

Moon is 402 968 km (250 393 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 912 km (224 882 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 29 December 2085 at 15:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 January 2086 at 03:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 29 December 2085 at 07:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.313°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.281° in the next southern standstill on 12 January 2086 at 20:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 15 January 2086 at 11:24 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
