Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 9 October 2037 at 02:34.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1842"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1925".

Hunter Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2037 after 8 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 467 / 1420

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 467 of Meeus index or 1420 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 467 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than next lunation 468 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.3°. 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 before apogee

6 days after point of perigee on 8 October 2037 at 13:04 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 October 2037 at 07:33 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 389 049 km

Moon is 389 049 km (241 744 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 008 km (252 282 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 3 October 2037 at 15:23 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 October 2037 at 03:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon in southern standstill

At 02:33 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.804°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.956° in its northern standstill point on 29 October 2037 at 20:04 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 24 October 2037 at 04:36 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
