Upcoming main Moon phases

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 483 / 1436

At 13:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 483 of Meeus index or 1436 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.57 days

29 days, 13 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 483. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 484 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠51.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠51.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠83.5°. 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

3 days after point of perigee on 21 January 2039 at 05:35 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2039 at 01:38 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 376 354 km

Moon is 376 354 km (233 856 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 385 km (251 273 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 22 January 2039 at 05:13 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 February 2039 at 05:55 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 22 January 2039 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.890°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.931° in the next northern standstill on 6 February 2039 at 03:54 in ♋ Cancer.
