Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Wolf Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2037 after 12 days on 31 January 2037 at 14:04.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 458 / 1411

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 458 of Meeus index or 1411 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.81 days

Length of current 458 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 20 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2037. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 459 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠146.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠146.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠173.2°. 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 17:43, this is 15 days after last perigee on 3 January 2037 at 21:29 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 1 February 2037 at 06:58 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 406 033 km

This apogee Moon is 406 033 km (252 297 mi) away from Earth. It is 625 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 676 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 17 January 2037 at 08:20 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 31 January 2037 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2037 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.586°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.575° in the next northern standstill on 29 January 2037 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 31 January 2037 at 14:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
