Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 26 December 2061 at 16:53.

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 in ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1867"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1867" and ∠1951".

Cold Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2062 after 23 days on 25 January 2062 at 03:37.

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 766 / 1719

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 766 of Meeus index or 1719 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.81 days

Length of current 766 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 20 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2062. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 767 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠201.9°. 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 apogee

20 days after point of apogee on 12 December 2061 at 07:27 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 8 January 2062 at 09:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 384 015 km

Moon is 384 015 km (238 616 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 473 km (252 571 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 20 December 2061 at 15:02 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 January 2062 at 00:30 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 26 December 2061 at 10:29 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.396°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.405° in the next southern standstill on 9 January 2062 at 02:13 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 10 January 2062 at 17:52 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
