Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 31 January 2058 at 10:28.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1946".

Snow Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2058 after 3 days on 8 February 2058 at 15:54.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 718 / 1671

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 718 of Meeus index or 1671 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 718 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2058. It is 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 719 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28.2°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:03, this is 12 days after last perigee on 23 January 2058 at 21:00 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 21 February 2058 at 06:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 978 km

This apogee Moon is 405 978 km (252 263 mi) away from Earth. It is 570 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 731 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 3 February 2058 at 20:37 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 February 2058 at 00:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon in northern standstill

At 09:27 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.565°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.665° in its southern standstill point on 19 February 2058 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 8 February 2058 at 15:54 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
