Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 13 February 2084 at 13:28.

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 ∠18° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1942".

Snow Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2084 after 6 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36.

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 1040 / 1993

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1040 of Meeus index or 1993 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 11 minutes. It is 37 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 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 36 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠58.7°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 22:33. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 4 February 2084 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 864 km

This apogee Moon is 404 864 km (251 571 mi) away from Earth. It is 544 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 845 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

10 days after ascending node on 4 February 2084 at 23:18 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 18 February 2084 at 23:12 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 18:41 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.289°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.203° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 29 February 2084 at 15:44.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 21 February 2084 at 16:36 in ♌ Leo 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.
