Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 21 January 2044 at 23:47.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1949".

Snow Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2044 after 18 days on 13 February 2044 at 06:42.

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 544 / 1497

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 544 of Meeus index or 1497 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.76 days

Length of current 544 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 16 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 545 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠204.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠204.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 09:32, this is 12 days after last perigee on 13 January 2044 at 09:08 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 February 2044 at 10:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 405 544 km

This apogee Moon is 405 544 km (251 993 mi) away from Earth. It is 136 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 165 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 18 January 2044 at 19:49 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 February 2044 at 08:49 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 13 January 2044 at 02:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.453°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.503° in the next southern standstill on 26 January 2044 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 30 January 2044 at 04:04 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
