Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 August 2037 at 10:41.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2037 after 13 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09.

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 465 / 1418

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 465 of Meeus index or 1418 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 465 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2037. It is 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 466 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:37, this is 12 days after last apogee on 31 July 2037 at 12:33 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 28 August 2037 at 00:28 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 796 km

This perigee Moon is 359 796 km (223 567 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 712 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 560 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 10 August 2037 at 01:40 in ♋ Cancer, 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 22 August 2037 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2037 at 21:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.369°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.390° in the next southern standstill on 21 August 2037 at 14:16 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
