Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 25 October 2083 at 14:36.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1932".

Hunter Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2083 after 25 days on 24 November 2083 at 08:23.

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 1036 / 1989

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1036 of Meeus index or 1989 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.41 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 52 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2083. It is 18 minutes shorter 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 2 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠325°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠325°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠343.6°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 11:06. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 13 October 2083 at 13:59 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 10 November 2083 at 19:25 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 405 765 km

This apogee Moon is 405 765 km (252 131 mi) away from Earth. It is 357 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 944 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

10 days after ascending node on 18 October 2083 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 November 2083 at 04:57 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 17:47 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.436°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.371° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 12 November 2083 at 02:36.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 9 November 2083 at 20:15 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
