Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 22 January 2086 at 02:41.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1866"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1866" and ∠1949".

Wolf Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2086 after 4 days on 29 January 2086 at 17:49.

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 1064 / 2017

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1064 of Meeus index or 2017 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 1064 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 1065 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠329.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠329.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2086 at 08:10 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2086 at 04:51 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 384 146 km

Moon is 384 146 km (238 697 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 946 km (252 243 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 20:34 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 9 February 2086 at 10:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 13:48 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.242°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2086. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.132° in its southern standstill point on 9 February 2086 at 06:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 29 January 2086 at 17:49 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
