Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 21 January 2082 at 12:15.

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.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1881"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1881" and ∠1949".

Snow Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2082 after 18 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2082 at 16:31 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 380 978 km

The Moon is 380 978 km (236 729 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 315 km (251 851 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 17 January 2082 at 15:31 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

21 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 at southern standstill

At 12:10 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.230°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.278° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 9 February 2082 at 02:32.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 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.
