Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1947".

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2049 after 15 days on 17 February 2049 at 20:47.

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 607 / 1560

At 13:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 607 of Meeus index or 1560 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.46 days

29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 607. It is 32 minutes shorter than next lunation 608 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠20°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠20°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠39.7°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 1 February 2049 at 08:51 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 February 2049 at 12:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 366 249 km

Moon is 366 249 km (227 577 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 515 km (251 975 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 29 January 2049 at 17:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 February 2049 at 17:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 29 January 2049 at 19:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.806°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.719° in the next northern standstill on 11 February 2049 at 21:45 in ♊ Gemini.
