Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 30 January 2044 at 04:04.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2044 after 11 days on 13 February 2044 at 06:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 545 / 1498

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 545 of Meeus index or 1498 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.67 days

Length of current 545 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 546 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠235.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠235.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠272.5°. 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

7 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 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 February 2044 at 10:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 386 411 km

Moon is 386 411 km (240 105 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 312 km (226 994 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 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 day, 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

5 days after previous South standstill on 26 January 2044 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.503°. Next 7 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.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 13 February 2044 at 06:42 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
