Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 24 January 2037 at 14:55.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Wolf Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2037 after 1 day on 31 January 2037 at 14:04.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 458 / 1411

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 458 of Meeus index or 1411 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 19 January 2037 at 17:43 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 February 2037 at 06:58 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 366 991 km

Moon is 366 991 km (228 038 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 596 km (222 200 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 January 2037 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 29 January 2037 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.575°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.580° in the next southern standstill on 11 February 2037 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
