Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 22 January 2084 at 23:15.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1856"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1856" and ∠1949".

Wolf Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2084 after 26 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36.

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 1039 / 1992

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 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 apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 19 January 2084 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 February 2084 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 182 km

The Moon is 386 182 km (239 962 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 658 km (225 345 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 22 January 2084 at 16:11 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 February 2084 at 23:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

17 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 before southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 19 January 2084 at 11:14 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.337°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.324° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 February 2084 at 09:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 6 February 2084 at 04:53 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
