Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1948".

Cold Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2083 after 14 days on 24 December 2083 at 03:52.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

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

New lunation 1038 / 1991

At 06:25 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1038 of Meeus index or 1991 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 52 minutes. It is 44 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 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠359.3°

The true anomaly is ∠359.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠15°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 07:26. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 25 November 2083 at 20:43 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 22 December 2083 at 20:30 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 356 689 km

This perigee Moon is 356 689 km (221 636 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2083. It is 5 819 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 264 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 29 November 2083 at 06:19 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 December 2083 at 02:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon at southern standstill

At 13:02 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-26.302°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2083. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠26.297° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 23 December 2083 at 04:56.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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