Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 28 January 2059 at 15:11.

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.

Moon is entering ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1823"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1946".

Wolf Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2059 after 22 days on 27 February 2059 at 10:06.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 730 / 1683

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 730 of Meeus index or 1683 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 730 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes. It is 52 minutes longer than next lunation 731 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠341.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠341.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠357°. 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

4 days after point of apogee on 30 January 2059 at 13:03 in ♌ Leo. 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 12 February 2059 at 18:34 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 393 260 km

Moon is 393 260 km (244 360 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 693 km (221 639 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 23 January 2059 at 08:38 in ♊ Gemini, 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 6 February 2059 at 23:45 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 26 January 2059 at 04:36 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.006°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.103° in the next southern standstill on 9 February 2059 at 14:58 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 12 February 2059 at 14:27 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
