Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 31 January 2037 at 14:04.

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

Wolf Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 26 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28.

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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2037 at 06:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 February 2037 at 23:45 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 364 730 km

Moon is 364 730 km (226 633 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 539 km (252 612 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 31 January 2037 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 February 2037 at 14:49 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 29 January 2037 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.575°. Next 7 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 11 days

After 11 days on 15 February 2037 at 04:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
