Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1948".

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2044 after 14 days on 13 February 2044 at 06:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

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 544 / 1497

At 09:48 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 544 of Meeus index or 1497 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.76 days

29 days, 18 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 544. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 25 January 2044 at 09:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 February 2044 at 10:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 905 km

Moon is 398 905 km (247 868 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 312 km (226 994 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 February 2044 at 08:49 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 26 January 2044 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.503°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.576° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2044 at 10:49 in ♊ Gemini.
