Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 5 December 2063 at 20:06.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1908"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1908" and ∠1948".

Cold Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2064 after 27 days on 4 January 2064 at 09:31.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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 790 / 1743

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 790 of Meeus index or 1743 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 790 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 791 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠55.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠55.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠88.4°. 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 28 November 2063 at 12:23 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 December 2063 at 13:44 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 714 km

Moon is 375 714 km (233 458 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 056 km (229 942 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 27 November 2063 at 08:58 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 11 December 2063 at 02:54 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 6 December 2063 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.761°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.752° in the next southern standstill on 19 December 2063 at 14:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 19 December 2063 at 20:04 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
