Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 21 October 2082 at 18:50.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1929".

Beaver Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2082 after 14 days on 5 November 2082 at 14:38.

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 1024 / 1977

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1024 of Meeus index or 1977 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠358°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠13.3°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 21 October 2082 at 21:44 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 November 2082 at 15:15 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 363 445 km

The Moon is 363 445 km (225 834 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 429 km (252 543 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 17 October 2082 at 11:28 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 October 2082 at 23:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 12 October 2082 at 18:49 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.713°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.625° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 October 2082 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 5 November 2082 at 14:38 in ♉ Taurus 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.
