Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 11 February 2051 at 06:41.

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

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1943".

Snow Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2051 after 12 days on 25 February 2051 at 14:53.

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 632 / 1585

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 632 of Meeus index or 1585 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 632 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 633 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠334.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠334.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠351.3°. 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 12 February 2051 at 18:54 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 February 2051 at 09:20 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 510 km

Moon is 363 510 km (225 875 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 980 km (252 264 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 3 February 2051 at 07:49 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 February 2051 at 04:27 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 6 February 2051 at 23:17 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.572°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.472° in the next northern standstill on 19 February 2051 at 14:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 25 February 2051 at 14:53 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
