Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 28 October 2082 at 12:13.

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 is entering ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1935".

Beaver Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2082 after 1 day 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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1024 of Meeus index or 1977 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 15:15. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 21 October 2082 at 21:44 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 19 November 2082 at 09:39 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 429 km

This apogee Moon is 406 429 km (252 543 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 021 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 280 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 29 October 2082 at 23:42 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 November 2082 at 14:12 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 25 October 2082 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.625°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.510° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 November 2082 at 00:08 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day 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.
