Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 8 February 2058 at 15:54.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Lunation 718 / 1671

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 5 February 2058 at 12:03 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 February 2058 at 06:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 377 987 km

Moon is 377 987 km (234 870 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 268 km (224 482 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 February 2058 at 00:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 5 February 2058 at 09:27 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.565°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.665° in the next southern standstill on 19 February 2058 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 22 February 2058 at 22:56 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
