Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32.

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 is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1823"

Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1916".

Harvest Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2037 after 24 days on 24 October 2037 at 04:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 466 / 1419

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 24 September 2037 at 03:44 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2037 at 13:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 393 168 km

Moon is 393 168 km (244 303 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 513 km (222 148 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 19 September 2037 at 02:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 October 2037 at 15:23 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 17 September 2037 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.547°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.695° in the next northern standstill on 2 October 2037 at 13:57 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 9 October 2037 at 02:34 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
