Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 December 2037 at 23:38.

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 ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1872" and ∠1948".

Cold Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2037 after 14 days on 22 December 2037 at 13:38.

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 469 / 1422

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 469 of Meeus index or 1422 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 469 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 3 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 470 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠48°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠48°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠79.2°. 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 perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 3 December 2037 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 December 2037 at 16:34 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 382 843 km

Moon is 382 843 km (237 888 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 504 km (251 347 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 26 November 2037 at 17:38 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 9 December 2037 at 12:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon in southern standstill

At 22:32 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.177°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2037. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.193° in its northern standstill point on 23 December 2037 at 09:44 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 22 December 2037 at 13:38 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
