Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 14 January 2084 at 18:02.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2084 after 3 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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 04:48. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 6 January 2084 at 20:08 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 4 February 2084 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 803 km

This apogee Moon is 405 803 km (252 154 mi) away from Earth. It is 395 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 906 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

10 days after ascending node on 8 January 2084 at 12:22 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 22 January 2084 at 16:11 in ♋ Cancer.

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 11:14 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.337°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2084. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.324° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 2 February 2084 at 09:12.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 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.
