Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 20 August 2083 at 13:46.

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 in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1897"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1897" and ∠1899".

Sturgeon Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 1 day on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.

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 1034 / 1987

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 1034 of Meeus index or 1987 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠266.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠266.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠299.9°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 3 September 2083 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 377 784 km

The Moon is 377 784 km (234 744 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 236 km (251 181 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 25 August 2083 at 13:34 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 September 2083 at 21:09 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

1 day 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 southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 22 August 2083 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.925°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.867° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 September 2083 at 03:16 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 27 August 2083 at 11:00 in ♓ Pisces 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.
