Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Wolf Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2063 after 13 days on 14 January 2063 at 19:11.

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 779 / 1732

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 779 of Meeus index or 1732 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.81 days

Length of current 779 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 26 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2063. It is 11 minutes longer than next lunation 780 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠154.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠154.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠179.8°. 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 apogee

6 days after point of perigee on 26 December 2062 at 08:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 January 2063 at 10:03 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 405 350 km

Moon is 405 350 km (251 873 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 278 km (252 449 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 21 December 2062 at 21:32 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 January 2063 at 05:33 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 29 December 2062 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.306°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.364° in the next northern standstill on 13 January 2063 at 00:22 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 14 January 2063 at 19:11 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
