Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 30 December 2081 at 04:28.

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 ♓ Pisces

Synodic month length 29.68 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 18 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 29 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠84.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠84.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠122.6°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 22 December 2081 at 10:49 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 January 2082 at 22:19 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 402 916 km

The Moon is 402 916 km (250 360 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 473 km (251 328 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 29 December 2081 at 05:56 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.138°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.182° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 January 2082 at 16:51 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 14 January 2082 at 18:11 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
