Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 2 September 2037 at 22:03.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1961"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1905".

Lunation 465 / 1418

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 before perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 28 August 2037 at 00:28 in ♈ Aries. 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 10 September 2037 at 02:13 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 471 km

Moon is 365 471 km (227 093 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 229 km (221 972 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 6 September 2037 at 10:34 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 19 September 2037 at 02:02 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 5 September 2037 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.473°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.547° in the next southern standstill on 17 September 2037 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 9 September 2037 at 18:25 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
