Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1831"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1831" and ∠1951".

It is Wolf Moon

The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2083.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.

Lunation 1026 / 1979

The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1026 of Meeus index or 1979 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.53 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 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 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠31°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠55.2°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 29 December 2082 at 13:39 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 January 2083 at 11:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 391 483 km

The Moon is 391 483 km (243 256 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 634 km (228 437 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 23 December 2082 at 05:41 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 January 2083 at 17:32 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

12 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 after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 2 January 2083 at 11:49 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.424°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.465° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 January 2083 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
