Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2059 after 15 days on 27 February 2059 at 10:06.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 730 / 1683

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 before perigee

11 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 February 2059 at 18:34 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 364 602 km

Moon is 364 602 km (226 553 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 693 km (221 639 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 6 February 2059 at 23:45 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 February 2059 at 09:15 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 9 February 2059 at 14:58 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.103°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.179° in the next northern standstill on 22 February 2059 at 09:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
