Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 17 December 2036 at 15:34.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2037 after 9 days on 2 January 2037 at 02:35.

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 457 / 1410

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 457 of Meeus index or 1410 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 457 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 458 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠113°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠113°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠146.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 01:08, this is 15 days after last perigee on 7 December 2036 at 01:52 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 3 January 2037 at 21:29 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 405 081 km

This apogee Moon is 405 081 km (251 706 mi) away from Earth. It is 327 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 628 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 21 December 2036 at 02:03 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 January 2037 at 20:54 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 18 December 2036 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.597°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.593° in the next northern standstill on 2 January 2037 at 00:56 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 2 January 2037 at 02:35 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
