Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 14 January 2082 at 18:11.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1961"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2082 after 26 days on 13 February 2082 at 06:16.

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 1014 / 1967

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1014 of Meeus index or 1967 from Brown series.

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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 16:31. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 5 January 2082 at 22:19 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 690 km

This perigee Moon is 365 690 km (227 229 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 182 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 666 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 15:31 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 12 January 2082 at 16:51 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.182°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.230° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 28 January 2082 at 20:46 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
