Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 7 January 2084 at 17:17.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1953"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2084 after 14 days on 22 January 2084 at 23:15.

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 1039 / 1992

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1039 of Meeus index or 1992 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 36 minutes. It is 35 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 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠15°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠15°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠33.6°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 6 January 2084 at 20:08 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 January 2084 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 367 027 km

The Moon is 367 027 km (228 060 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 803 km (252 154 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 12:22 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 22 January 2084 at 16:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 12:22 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 6 January 2084 at 00:01 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.325°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.337° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 January 2084 at 11:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 22 January 2084 at 23:15 in ♋ Cancer 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.
