Moon phase and lunation details

1 day 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 in ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2037 after 13 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32.

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 466 / 1419

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 466 of Meeus index or 1419 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 466 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 467 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠354.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.6°. 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 perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 02:13, this is 13 days after last apogee on 28 August 2037 at 00:28 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 September 2037 at 03:44 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 357 229 km

This perigee Moon is 357 229 km (221 972 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 279 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 127 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

4 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 8 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

5 days after previous North standstill on 5 September 2037 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.473°. Next 7 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 13 days

After 13 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
